Originally, when I started this website, my intent was to use the site as a venue for publishing samples of my writing for potential customers interested in my freelance writing services.

While I enjoy writing, sometimes it can be difficult. Especially when writing something that must confirm to strict standards—such as essays, articles on a pre-determined topic or short stories that have both word limits and pre-defined styles. Essay’s are particularly difficult to write as all sources and references must be documented using proper citation styles.

Posted below are links to a small selection of some sample articles that demonstrate my writing style.

Some of the topics are a bit off the wall, but then, so am I! 😉
