What's the difference

In my four years of university study in English and Creative Writing, I have acquired and honed skills in research and writing far beyond the average writer. Working quickly, accurately, and within a strict time frame is essential for academic success, and these traits make me uniquely qualified for a vast array of writing jobs outside of academia.

ebook construction and writing

“I’ve hired dozens of copywriters on odesk and most of them have been mediocre and others very disappointing. I’ve learnt it’s very difficult to find an exceptional copywriter/editor. Most lack an ability to put substance, character, flow, and motivation along with detail within their writing. I often found myself having to pass a piece of writing to three and sometimes four copywriters. However, I can finally tell you, I have found that rare copywriter who has all of the above. In fact, he is so good I’ve made him the head editor of my business. Tom has produced nearly 600 hours of work for me and he never ceases to amaze me whenever I read a new draft he’s written. His work is truly breath taking. I advise you not to hire him, because I want him all to myself  (of course, I’m joking, just know you cannot go wrong with Tom).”

Seeking Junior Editor

“I wish there was a star in between weak & good, as that is the one I would have picked.Tom is a very very nice person & he communicates well.In the beginning he did an ok job with editing (not great), & then things started to occasionally trail off from there.I wouldn't call him a full blown editor, probably more a proof reader & we needed a real editor. I will have to get the files redone by someone else.I enjoyed working with Tom, it's just the above average skill we needed just wasn't there.We wish him all the best.”
