"This is how you do it:
you sit down at the keyboard and you put one word after another until its done.
It's that easy, and that hard."
- Neil Gaiman
Writing has been always a joy--and often a crucible-- my entire life. It wasn't until I was out of 9-t0-5 options that I realized something: writing isn't just my hobby, it is my life's work. My friend asked if I could write for her business. My Of course! was instinctive. I didn't have to think about it. I knew I would write for her, that I would give it my heart, and I would be exhilarated by it, all at once. And I wondered: Why did it take me this long to realize: I don't just enjoy writing, I am a writer?
And I never looked back.
I have loved writing professionally: for friends, for businesses, for nonprofits: it's all deeply satisfying and fulfilling work. I have the honor of helping people refine--and in some cases discover--their story, their voice, their message for the world.
Whether it's creating something from scratch, or after a good brainstorm has sprouted some new ideas, I'm ready and eager to put my passion for writing to work for you, and your success.
