Emerging author and creative content writer
I straddle two writing worlds. I love writing fiction but I’m also passionate about writing for the web. If there’s one word that best describes both interests, it’s creative.
But I don’t want you to get the wrong idea. While my creativity ignites in the subconscious soup along with imagination, chaos and other irregularities, I also enjoy planning and working with rules. That’s why I like copywriting.
And the best thing about being creative? It’s knowing when to break the rules.
My writing niche
I’m keen to work with individual artists. People like myself who might be authors, actors, musicians, artists and artisans. Although, I also reach out to other writing opportunities outside my speciality, as it can spark new ideas and insights.
How I can help you write for the web?
Writing for the web requires skills and knowledge that differ from writing a book. Copywriting in itself is an art form with its own set of rules and structures.
As an online writer my aim is to help you spend more time doing what you love, by writing reliable online content for your website and blog.
I’m also interested in working with clients in workplace health and safety, training, recruitment and human resources.
On this website, you’ll find articles and blog posts that span both creative and technical topics. Rather than keep my two worlds separated, I prefer to show them off together.
Technical topics give you information about writing for the web, self-hosted websites and WordPress. Although this information is focused on supporting individual artists, it still contains information that you may find useful for your industry.
Creative topics explore my personal journey as a creative writer. It includes mixed media, poetry, writing samples and research.
Reviews reflect on books, television, movies, radio and other forms of digital entertainment.
Life Musings mill over everything else including world cultural events.
Where else do I write?
Since 2012, HubPages regularly feature my articles where I’m a popular online author. My accolades include being listed as ‘Article of the Day’ on the Hubpage homepage and I’ve been read over 100,000 times.
- Fictional world building
- Human resources
- Card Games
- Endangered species
Sometimes, I need to conduct research to better understand the subject and themes but research to me is more than just discovering archival information.
My business background
My background establishes my authority on various topics. You can view my profile on Linkedin for an in-depth coverage of my career history.
As a content writer, I work as an online published author or as a ghostwriter. On topics outside my sphere of experience, I prefer to work with a client or editor to create reliable and accurate web page content.
My interest and knowledge of ever-changing SEO practices, means my content writing employs copywriting techniques.
More recently, my work as an Internet Ads Assessor adjudicating the quality of Bing search responses, broadened my experience and knowledge of search engine mechanics.
My credentials also show I’m keen to stay apprised of industry standards and changes.
