What makes me shine?

Creative non-fiction story writing is my first interest. Simple communication, a casual first person style and an interesting real life story, written with a love of words! I am open to writing fiction too; I’m not a canned product and don’t restrict myself to one genre. I’m creative, goal driven and excited to learn new skills.

2020 – 2021!

In the last year, life circumstances have turned me in a new direction. Rather than sit in despair, I have embraced my true self and followed my heart! Here is what I have done:

  • Completed ‘The Strategy of Content Marketing’ University California- Davis, by Coursera on-line learning.
  • Designed my own webpage using WordPress, and written a monthly blog.
  • Shared my posts to a variety of social media platforms.
  • Posted to the Medium community.
  • Learned how to write SEO friendly posts- I can position myself on page one of search engine results.
  • Learned to edit using Pro-Writing Aid and AutoCrit , and have completed ‘Editing Mastery’ and ‘Writing with Flair’ by Shani Raja.
  • Successfully completed Contena Academy and have published my profile.
  • Completed the AutoCrit Short Story Challenge, to write a 5000 word fiction in two weeks.

What now?

I continue to learn from the writing community, authors and qualified marketing tutors. Having successfully completed Coursera’s on-line course: The Strategy of Content Marketing- University of California- Davis, I’m open to work.
