I have worked in a technical support role for several industries and love the problem-solving aspects of my work as well as helping clients maximize their productivity.

I'm driven by a life-long curiosity about the world and people around me. My passions range from creative writing, photo-editing, performing and listening to music, problem-solving puzzles such as sudoku, cooking and baking, all types of crafting, sewing and yarn arts, creative resources on the internet and learning new apps for my favorite toy...my iPhone.

comment What exactly is wrong with 'It was a dark and stormy night'?
The "dark and stormy" sentence does a lot of telling while the Dickens' passage does more showing - always better to show, IMHO. Can't you picture fog drooping on gunwales of barges? Good stuff!
comment Striking the balance between dialogue and narrative
+1 for the assassination of the internal editor! :-D
comment How can I write anonymously (based on true experiences)?
KHill, couldn't you just write it as fiction (based on actual events)?
comment “I have/am” what are other short ways to not repeat this in a cover letter?
@Maddy, I though of leading with an action verb also but your answer went way beyond that with great advice!
comment As a freelance writer, should I charge more for inconvenient time worked?
Sounds like something that should be in your contract regardings terms, deadlines, compensation, etc.
comment Is there some guideline that I can point to about the overuse of bold and underline?
My pleasure - best of luck, Nate!
