Answers to some of your questions today

Q: How long does it take to complete a project?

A: This is based on your need. Some projects need a two or three week lead time. Others, like a novel, may require as much as six to eight months to complete.”

If your deadline is short, indicate your required completion date on my contact form. I’ll let you know immediately if I can meet that deadline.

Q: What are your qualifications as a editor/writer?

A. Because of my extensive background, my primary qualification is the ability to write in your authentic voice. Your readers will recognize themselves in your pieces.

A professional business writer must have six key skills to tell a story. In addition to a credible, yet conversational tone, a writer/storyteller must have:

  • Polished writing skills.
  • An ability to create attention grabbing headlines and sub-headlines.
  • A thorough knowledge of the target audience, or end-user.
  • A talent creating stories relevant to the target end-user.
  • Rising urgency leading to some action you want taken.
  • Specialization of services.

In addition to my 40+ years writing business documents of all kinds, I’ve had 10+ years of experience in creative writing. The two overlap because they use the same, basic skills. Case studies, blogs, and even articles are all stories. A creative writer must possess:

  • Polished writing skills.
  • An ability to create attention grabbing first lines, or hooks for stories or chapters.
  • A through knowledge of the audience for whom the stories are written.
  • A talent to create stories relevant to the intended reader.
  • Presentation of some conflict and quest, or call to action, by the primary character.
  • Specialization of genre.

With a bachelor’s in English literature, a master’s in community counseling, and a doctorate in metaphysics, (alternative health and self-improvement), my entire education and background relate to engaging people. I use the skills I’ve presented here. In the education industry I can do this better than anyone.

Q: What can I expect when working with you?

A. You can expect a friendly and courteous professional dedicated to helping you succeed in your writing venture.You can also expect well-planned, well-written and well-executed documents. All of them will be reader-friendly and designed to achieve your objectives.

Q: What does it cost to hire you for a project?

A. It’s hard to answer this question without knowing the parameters of your project. What you need may be different than what someone else needs. Examples of possible scopes of your project may be, but are not limited to:

  • Series of new case studies for a standard product, or even a new product.
  • An educational article designed to highlight a career, a situation, or a product/service.
  • A speech or presentation for an internal, or external audience.
  • Books used for marketing purposes, or even novellas, book reviews, or memoirs.

By taking a customized approach for your project, you can expect me to:

  • Recap your vision to demonstrate I heard your concerns and needs.
  • Provide an action plan for the specific aspects of your project, including the authentic voice you need for the selected audience.
