Even as a kid, English was always my favorite subject of study. I was raised to have an appreciation for the way words worked together to form coherent thoughts. For me, a person’s command of their own language is a true gauge of their intelligence.
Despite the fact that the Internet and technology have given us so many fast and effective ways to communicate with each other, our overall language skills have declined. A countless number of people use the written word to express their thoughts, share their feelings, and to give instruction; but few actually do so correctly. Helping individuals and business owners alike is what drives me to constantly reevaluate myself as a writer and editor, ensuring that I am providing the most professional writing services to my clients.
While in school, I supported myself as a legal secretary in addition to doing freelance writing. The most enjoyable aspect of working as a legal secretary was writing and editing pleadings. Due to the nature of our work and the sheer volume of files, attention to detail was absolutely crucial to avoid fines and to protect the reputation of our attorneys. This position also gave me exposure to many of the different business documents that required strong writing and editing skills.
Still, I enjoyed the flexibility and excitement that freelance writing provided. Each assignment was something different and more challenging than the previous. Additionally, my clients came from all walks of life and different industries. Though my skills and knowledge are always put to good use, working as a freelance writer and editor meant that I was in a constant state of learning. Eventually, I made the decision to make my love of writing and editing my full time job. I am truly happy to say that I have not looked back since.
One thing that I have learned as a freelance writer and editor is that money and prominence cannot be your motivating force. The reality is that some months are better than others when it comes to money, and you are in no way guaranteed any sort of recognition. In fact, I do not receive credit for 90% of the things that I write.
I will not lie and say that I don’t care about the money (I was never the starving artist type). Yet, the recognition means very little to me. After all, if someone else is not willing to put their name on my work, it couldn’t be all that great. My sincere passion for writing and preserving the integrity of the written word is what pushes me to excel for my clients. Successful communication is at the heart of every business or organization. Effective storytelling is what turns novels into masterpieces. My passion is making sure that the world never loses sight of those truths.
When I interviewed for job opportunities, I remember always being asked that dreaded question: “Why should we hire you?”. As much as I hate the question, I understand the value of it as a freelancer better than I did as an employee. The reality is that there are many freelancers you can choose from, and I am likely just one of the many stops on your search. I cannot deliver the moon and the stars to you, so I will not promise you that.
What I can promise you is that no matter the size, challenge, or how impossible your project may seem, I will help you see it through to its completion and I will always give you my very best. 9 times out of 10, I will even do it with a smile.
