On Time Copy

I love copy writing. And I love freelance copy writing.

I spent more years than I care to remember in the corporate world as a contract technical writer. User manuals. PowerPoint presentations. Meetings - and more meetings. Teams. Project managers. It wasn't inspiring. It paid the bills, but stifled my creativity.

One day I signed up for a copy writing course. It was like coming home. Since then, I've eaten up courses. Gained invaluable experience to improve my skills. And I never stop learning. No day is the same. There's a new challenge around every corner. I'm living my dream.

I love the power of words. How a simple phrase can tug at your heart. Or make you smile. How web content can keep your interest – from beginning to end. And then have you clicking to order or sign up. How a blog can change your way of thinking. How a tagline can stay in your mind forever.

Using the power of words is my passion. Helping clients achieve great results is my purpose.
