For as long as I can remember, I have loved words on a page and I have enjoyed creating the written word. In grade school, the section in the Riverside Spelling Book called Let’s Write drew my anticipation. After quickly completing all of the spelling exercises, I could not wait to create my next fascinating story.
Many people have a fascinating story to create, but sometimes they are not sure how to start or who to turn to for help. Some may fear they are unable to communicate clearly, or they are concerned about making grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors. There is a hesitation, especially when it comes to writing for an audience. So they don’t try, or they procrastinate and make excuses. Most importantly, some people are not aware of how writing can be utilized as a tool or platform to help them reach their dreams.
I propose that giving up on telling your story is not the answer, but gathering the necessary tools, education, and looking to the right person for assistance is the answer. Through my business and my blog, Eagles Mount Editing, it is my passion to equip any willing person with what they need to tell their story and reach their dreams. I would like to help allay the writing fears of those who have a dream to reach an audience through their work. Through the writing strategies, inspiration, and motivation presented on my blog, once timid writers, will stand as firm and confident authors of their dreams. And through my professional editing services which authors entrust their works, their audiences will receive a clear message of inspiration.
My experience with writing and editing include English Language Arts and AP Language and Composition teacher for 16 years, a professional reader for Educational Testing Services for 6 years. My credentials include a B.A. degree in English and an M.S. in Secondary Education. I also hold an ED.S. in Educational Leadership. I have completed an editing certification program at Lawson State College and I am a member of ACES.
