    Language is the vessel of the mind.

    Accurate, concise, thoughtful composition is not only ideal in the realm of written communication; it is essential to understanding and clarity. As a writer, I consider the needs of the client as well as his or her preferences. I effectively incorporate these aspects into the text, and successfully evoke the desired response from the reader. I accomplish this by defining the target audience, and studying them. Why? I am keenly aware that in order to affect the readers, I must first understand them and their motivation to read. Will this be a compulsory read or a leisure read? Do they seek comprehension of a complex concept or indulgence in fiction? Is a clear and concise presentation of facts or elaborate description best? A noteworthy text concurrently and harmoniously satisfies both client and audience, and the needs and desires of one are not sacrificed for the other. As a writer, I am highly attuned to this, and will find a harmonious balance for the text.

    I love how words can describe everything you think, feel and do. I love to bring my readers to where I am, as if they're sitting across from me drinking tea and having a chat. When I write a content article, I want them to come away with useful knowledge. When I write for the realm of horror, I want my readers to feel every shiver and icy breath. When I write a poem, I want them to be moved either by the beautiful pictures the words paint, or if horror, the disturbing after effects it leaves .When I write an emotional short story, I want them to shed tears. I believe you are defined by the words you use. I am an organized and dedicated professional to my work which is my life's blood. I have an excellent work ethic and I won't be happy with my work until you are satisfied too! Give me a try, you won't be sorry you did!

    I deliver high quality content on time at an affordable price. My work is done efficiently and effectively, and I meet clients' needs. I have been freelance writing for years, and I have decided to begin using eLance to manage my working relationships. I am by far the hardest person I know to work for, sometimes so much that I hate being my own boss and having to answer to myself. I take accountability to the next level. If you are looking for someone who is intrinsically motivated to succeed, self-disciplined, and hard working, look no further. I am that red penned English teacher we all dreaded writing for in school. I write well, I know eduction, and I am extremely passionate about doing things right. I think the most productive working relationships are those with clear expectations. By taking the time to get to know what the client wants and expects, productivity becomes efficient and effective. I work hard at achieving this when I am chosen to do any job.
