“Learn as much by writing as by reading.” ~ Lord Acton
This quote from one of the world’s most learned Englishman sums up my philosophy. Reading has always been my way to learn and writing has been a way to express myself. More importantly, I have learned that to become a good writer, you need to read as much as you can and write as much as possible. So that is what I did.
Growing up, when my friends were outside, I was inside reading everything I could get my hands on. That foundation helped me hone my writing skills and build an administrative career that has spanned over 20 years, and crossed the lines of business within the Architectural/Construction, Manufacturing, Hospitality and Banking industries. No matter where I went, my co-workers turned to me for peer reviews and assistance. It did not take long before I was sought out to write and edit manuals, letters, product descriptions, emails and other complex business documents for print and online media.
But writing in the business world was not going to be enough for me, so I started Today’s Writing Woman to give myself a platform to share my thoughts and ideas with others. From book/product reviews to commentaries on local area businesses to several columns at the examiner.com, I have provided my insights on a variety of topics.
Writing has brought me opportunities to participate in number of groups such as the Magazine Advisers Community, National Association of Professional Women, BlogHer Visionaries Panel and the Penguin Random House Reader Advisory Panel. I am a former member of the Coastal Living Viewfinders, and a current member of the National Association of Professional Women.
Please take a moment to check out my portfolio of work here. As Today’s Writing Woman continues to expand, I welcome requests to assist with a variety of projects, including book and product reviews, editing manuscripts, help with publishing and other assorted freelance writing. Please e-mail me here for price quotes on my writing and editing services or request book and product reviews. I also welcome conversation with other women writers who want to join and share at Today’s Writing Woman!
Looking forward to hearing from all of you; let’s live, learn and write!
