If you are currently looking for a freelance writer, proofreader, editor or transcriber, your search stops here!
My life is spent not drowning; but happily waving, in a sea of words; reading, writing, speaking, listening to and thinking about them.
A degree in English, together with a rich and varied work experience history has provided me with a wide range of skills. My passion for education is reflected in the ten fulfilling years I spent teaching six- and seven-year olds; witnessing the sheer delight on their faces as they discovered, for the first time, the joys held within the written word. In addition, I have taught adults to speak, read and write English as a second language; trained both children and adults on various computer systems; and written and designed training manuals. The years I spent working as a personal assistant and legal secretary (both locally and in London), have resulted in an ability to type at the speed of light.
Blessed with an eagle eye; I pounce on spelling mistakes and grammatical errors with the accuracy of a raptor swooping down from the heavens and plucking mice out of wheat fields. I am meticulous, thorough and an advocate of triple-checking. My proofreading and editing experience to date has ranged from school reports to books, articles and audio-to-text transcripts. A regular attendee at writing workshops, I write daily because I believe, in the words of Anaïs Nin, that “we write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect.”
I have created this blog for two reasons. Firstly, to satisfy the requests of my Facebook friends, who apparently enjoy my lengthy real-life anecdotes. (I hope you will enjoy them too.) Secondly, to attract new clients. Which I hope you will become.
Please let me know how I can satisfy your writing / editing / proofreading needs. I hope to be “write up your alley”!
