This crazy train we call life is running as smoothly as it ever has. For me, at least. The last few years have seen me develop and hone my skills. I have done this on my own, and excelled at the jobs I have taken on.
When I was school age, English was my number one subject, without trying. My grades were far higher than in any other subject, and I don't think I did more than three afternoons' worth of revision. As I grew up and realised what a waste that was, I decided not to go to university. I instead went to college and tried media studies for the first time. Editing and writing were my forte. The highest grades I got were for written work and video editing. I then took these skills and realised them in journalism. However, the pay wasn't so great, in fact I made no money, so went back to college to meet new people, and discover some more lines of work that might be open to me. I came away with a distinction in every subject on the course, with my course manager praising my organisation, assertiveness and leadership qualities.
Now, I manage a rock band, looking after their social media sites and talking to people in the music industry, and I am also a chief writer and editor for two separate websites. The writing is a chance to show my flair, and the editing is about polishing the brilliant articles written by my colleagues. In an entertainment business where news moves so fast, you have to be quick with articles, and sometimes grammar gets missed, or a word gets repeated. It's my job to filter that, and make our work truly competitive, as it needs to be.
I am very quick to spot mistakes, or sentences that don't quite flow. I love reading fiction and non-fiction, with many an hour passing by looking up references and information on subjects I want to know more about. I'm happy to work on fiction or non-fiction, business documents and personal documents. I spent most of last year helping young people out of school write CVs (resumes). I write fiction in my spare time, with the idea of sharing it with the world one day.
