I would also be thrilled to review books and share reviews through social media in exchange for a free copy of said book. (It’s not easy on my income to buy all the books I’d like.)
My relationship with time is quite different from the mainstream experience of it, so charging by the hour would not be desirable for the client. I currently copy-edit at a reasonable rate for my experience – 10 cents a word. (If the writer/client doesn’t use “track changes,” there is an additional fee of 5 cents a word to copy-edit additional re-writes of the same material because it is very time-consuming to track down the changes myself. I also don’t use google docs or deal with “clouds” at this time.)
Unfortunately, I can’t back myself up with a college degree. In the seven and a half years that I attended college, I aced my copy writing class, did well in English courses, and received high grades in almost all of my academic papers.
My academic past also includes some experience in music, music education, music therapy, art, technical theater, radio broadcasting, and dance.
Writing is my preferred means of communicating. I use it for my own personal growth and balance and hope it helps others too. Writer friends who like my style of writing have asked to work with me on projects we care about – for example, environmental justice, green living, holistic dentistry, and community awareness.
I am fairly familiar with Non-Violent Communication. I attempt to use it with a lot of my writing, and would be thrilled if someone wanted that from me. They say you can catch more flies with honey, but I see the mainstream trying to catch flies with fear. Ultimately that weakens humanity and sets us back in accomplishing our mission (love, freedom, peace).
I’m willing to write about any topic – provided it is not against any of my core beliefs. I write best when I’m passionate about the topic. My primary interests are natural and healthy food, healthy recipes, natural health, mental/emotional health, social justice, nutrition, herbs, gardening/farming, composting, fermented food, animals, plants, NVC (Non-Violent Communication), and poetry.
My blog writing tends to be a little profane and heavy on the slang, idioms, and clichés. My professional writing is just that – professional.
