    My Belief: I always remind people not to write for the wrong reasons—marketplace reasons that crush your true identity. Give yourself permission to believe in the validity of your own narrative. My Introduction: Capable and motivated I believe my skills in writing web-content, essays, and short articles has given so much during the last couple of years. It is a matter of great privilege and honor to be a part of such a credible and motivated writing podium. I feel myself fortunate enough to be not only blessed with all the potential and qualities of a professional writer but my tremendous communication qualities combined with complete grip on the SEO skills have made me really a treat to offer. My Objective: I’ve always strived hard to set high standards of excellence in education as well as in writing original and unique content and struggled to measure upto those standards. My intentions has always been to put something new in my writings so that the readers may take something in a positive fashion. Thanks to God I’ve been imbedded the same spirit of dedication and devotion as been expected of a sheer professional Freelancer. Let me take this opportunity to erudite the readers with my erudition and experience through my writings. My Expertise: I have a proven track record in almost all of the competencies a writer must have. Here are a few highlights: • Handled a wide range of creative services, collaborating with creative services peers, subordinates and vendors to produce marketing and other print communications, as well online communications and video projects. • Exceptional writing and editing skills honed over the past 5-6 years in public relations and corporate communications; from press releases to newsletters to video scripts to web sites and yes, guest columns. • Developing and implementing communications strategies for reaching employees and other stakeholders. • Providing communications counsel and expertise to executives and managers for issues management, benefits communications and employee relations. A Strong Faith in Writing! Writing is a sanity-saving companion for people in times of grief, loss, illness, and other accidents of fate. Just getting down on paper those grim details–still another bout of surgery, still another befogged moment with a husband or wife lost to Alzheimer’s–will validate your ordeal and make you feel less alone. Writing is also a potent search mechanism, often as helpful as psychoanalysis and a lot cheaper. When you start on your memoir you’ll find your subconscious mind delivering your past to you, recalling people and events you have entirely forgotten. That voyage of rediscovery is a pleasure in itself. Depressingly often I hear from people who are stalled on a piece of writing for reasons that have nothing to do with actual writing. They are snarled in the machinery of trying to market what they write. Please! Try not to acquiesce too quickly in projects that you know aren’t right for who you are. Think about other financial solutions that will free you to focus on the primary task of becoming a writer. Give more thought to the longer trajectory of your life. Your most important work-in-progress is not the story you’re working on now. Your most important work-in-progress is you. A Life Without Work! “What is there in life if you do not work? There is only sensation, and there are only a few sensations–you cannot live on them. You can only live on work, by work, through work. How can you live with self-respect if you do not do things as well as lies in you?” I always try to make sure the way I discuss a certain subject is different and I tend to think out of the box.
