Writing Services

The next few pages tell you the sort of things that I can write for you, but don't (please!) see them as an exhaustive list. If you need words then I'll write them for you.

At this point, you may be wondering about my 'specialist subject', in other words, what can I write about. I would have to answer that I don't have one. Yes, I draw upon past experiences such as almost-lawyer or civil servant or management development trainer or mediator or pusher of trolleys in a car park (not necessarily in that order) but I don't allow them to restrict my writing.

My 'specialist subject' - my passion - is the English language and with it I can write about...

...Finnish jazz, chilli recipes, leadership theory, the Latvian justice system, storytelling, group & team dynamics, zen buddhism, European cities, the assorted undead, the Johari Window, beers of the world, CEOs, Spanish cinema, managing diversity, novels of Haruki Murakami, glaciers, the use of the I Ching, strategic decision-making, putting up curtain poles, religion -v- faith, success, Ikea furniture, Chrysler PT Cruisers, Peruvian architecture, online games, quantum physics, constructive cynicism, tai chi chuan (Yang style), the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, renewable energy sources, learning Castilian, correct use of apostrophes, biking in Iceland, guitars, organisational change management, Marvel comics, DC comics, films of Quentin Tarantino, Linux, dalmatians...

...to name just a few topics off the top of my head. I love to write. The subject is entirely up to you.

As to how we might work together, I use the following 7-step approach as a starting point on all projects:
  1. Understand the client's desired outcomes and success criteria
  2. Understand the target market (readership)
  3. Agree the writing style and tone which best ensures the client's outcomes
  4. Conduct any necessary independent research on the subject or product
  5. Write (using correct grammar, punctuation, vocabulary, etc., of course)
  6. Proofreading to check for accuracy, sense and readability
  7. Feedback and evaluation with the client

To take these steps together, read the following pages or email me now with your requirements and I'll reply with free (absolutely) quote within one working day.
