The right words for the right occasion.
Before we get to your story, let me tell you mine - get to know the person behind the service.
I was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada to Salvation Army officer parents. Things are a little different now, but then it was customary for Salvation Army officers to move quite often--almost as much as the military Army. For us, that meant every 2 1/2 years, at least.
The only advantage to all this moving was that I got to see all of Canada--excluding the Territories--several times. (If you have never taken a cross-country Canada car trip put it on your life's to-do list.) So, as a writer, I have the advantage of being able to place a story pretty much anywhere I want.
It also provided me, thankfully, with teachers and opportunities to encourage and enhance my writing skills--speech competitions, essay competitions, writing courses, creative writing assignments.
I always knew that all I wanted to do in life was write--and sing, but that's another story. Unfortunately, without publishing credits and experience it is a very difficult market to make a living at, so I turned to secretarial work. My penchant for organization and professionalism--not to mention my (then) 50 wpm typing speed--were hot commodities and so that's where I turned my attention.
Nearly 15 years of experiences in a variety of secretarial/administrative positions saw my writing and editorial skills enhanced, my typing speed gradually increased to 100 wpm or more, and a means of providing for my family while pursuing what I'd always wanted.
That leads me to...
Why I'm Here
So, after nearly 15 years of commuting and early mornings--each of these things getting longer and earlier, and more expensive--fuelled by my accumulated experience, expertise and desire--I decided that it was time to put my extra effort into doing what I'd always wanted to do.
I desired to work from home aiming to make the same amount that I would working in an office job, but with the advantage of no commute, no early mornings, more home time, little to no gas expense, lesser car insurance requirements.So, that's what I did. I started Dar's Corrections and have never regretted my decision!
