Now that I'm retired, I'm looking for occasional work with words to take advantage of my hard-earned skills and to supplement my Social Security income, so I'm not trying to make a fortune. I offer fast turnaround and close personal attention to any project you entrust to me.  less

    "Experienced. Creative. Innovative." "Dodging plagiarism and meeting deadlines are not an issue." "Open to training and acquiring new relevant skills to expand my horizon." "What harbor a good working relationship are availability, communication, professionalism and a show of humanity." I have been a web content writer for two years now. Most articles I've written involved SEO, LSI, as well as Tips and How-to articles-- plus bits and pieces of Product Reviews and Product Promotion/Sales. I do my homework and make the necessary research in order to compose original and Copyscape-passed articles, and deliver them just in the nick of time. Manual rewriting (not software-based) is also another clever skill I have, and which I find truly indispensable in escaping Copyscape.  less
