The cradle rocks above an abyss and common sense tells us that our existence is but a brief crack of light between two eternities of darkness.” – Vladimir Nabokov

Highly influenced by fiction that brings you to emotional places where you either confront your struggles or help your people combat theirs.

Content Writing

Suppose you have created a website and have trouble adding a description to each category, I will help you emphasize your ultimate solution to your customers’ problems (as well as who you are and what you have accomplished). You want to sell your value in every way you can and have a style and voice to make you stand out. Your brand will develop over time.

I have created content for small businesses on Amazon and local photographers. They have sold products worth thousands of dollars.

Proofreading/Editing

Yes, editors are intimidating, and it took me years to finally hire a professional to edit my book. However, you will not regret it; you will appreciate the objectivity, productivity and sharp eye for detail. Most importantly, you will learn to view things from different angles. Be in your readers’ shoes more often. And perhaps “The Elements of Style” by E.B. White will become your bible.

If English is your second language and you are unsure if your story, essay, article, text, blog, etc. needs polishing, show me, and I will let you know. As a “proofreader,” you generally screen the text for grammatical errors and typos, whereas editing involves an in-depth analysis of the content. A good editor will cross out needless words and highlight areas that you should redraft.

Fiction Writing/Ghostwriting & other

I will break down this service into sections:

Fiction: I am a storyteller. Writing fiction is my strength and the reason why this website came into fruition. Fiction is a realm to which you can escape–to take a break from reality or learn to view reality from a different perspective. Or, it allows the reader to learn more about YOU. Sometimes your message isn’t clear to people; they don’t understand you, no matter how well you explain it to them in real life. Therefore, you create a character based on you (call it semi-autobiographical) to make the reader empathize with your protagonist. E.g., suppose you try to tell a painful story. In that case, you tell an honest story about your feelings. However, if you’ve committed an immoral act and want people to like you still, you will adopt the unreliable narrator’s technique and manipulate your reader into doing so. 

Ghostwriting: I will ghostwrite for both fiction and non-fiction. BUT: Only if it’s story-based and/or personal (i.e., biographies, literary fiction).

Other: I offer scriptwriting, blog writing, newsletters, tagline slogans, social media, eBook formatting support.

Niches: Travel/tourism, health/fitness, film/entertainment, pets, food culture, music (punk, rock & metal).

***Please note that I do not write “how-to’s,” manuals or manipulative marketing where your customer pays you more than your product’s value.***
