    Putting your ideas into words

    Canada - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 3

    I put your ideas into words. A writer writes, and a professional writer writes with the client in mind. I've written professionally for years in many fields from the technical to the imaginative. Whether I'm writing or editing an e-book, creating a manual, revising or ghostwriting your novel, or even posting to a blog I keep one thing in mind: Presenting your ideas to the reader. My job is to write transparently; to use words so that the reader only notices what I'm saying, not how I'm saying it. I'm there to be a bridge between your thoughts and the reader's mind.
