THAT YOU ARE ON THIS PAGE SHOWS THAT YOU NEED SOMETHING.
We are defined by words,
we understand with words,
we express through words,
but sometimes our words tumble
one atop the other
and the value and meaning of our ideas are lost.
Together we can discover the wealth of your words. This journey begins with a conversation about your needs.
I OFFER A RANGE OF WRITING AND EDITING SERVICES.
Writing can be a solitary endeavour, but I prefer to see it as a more collaborative venture.
Whether you need help with your own writing or you are looking for a writer of your ideas, together we can make your story sing!
Editing It is incredibly difficult to spot errors in your own work, so let me help you polish your writing. You write it and I can tweak it to perfection! Looking for something else? I’d love to hear about your project ideas. Contact me and let’s chat about what you need.
Shel, You are an inspiration! Thank you for all your support with Bliss. Every hour you spent on our work is a blessing to Bliss and the cause that it advocates.

We definitely want you to continue providing your services to us. Our relationship with you has grown so much through the past year and you are truly an asset to our organization. We would happily recommend your services. Thank you.

Let us collaborate – I can ghostwrite your ideas through my words. I work in fiction and non-fiction. Ghostwriting fees vary from project to project depending on the word length and level of work required.
CORPORATE HISTORY WRITING
Corporate histories help you tell the story of your organisation beyond the facts and figures. I am a corporate storyteller, interested in telling the story of your company and its people.
Life stories (autobiography, biography and memoir) recreate, discover and celebrate a life.
I can help you shape personal vignettes and stories into a coherent narrative that conveys the larger wisdom and story of your life or the life of a loved one.
Sometimes you just need a little help to find, start, shape or complete your own story.
With a long background as a teacher of writing, I offer guidance, advice, direction and support.

I just wanted to let you know how happy I am with the work you have recently done on my copy for my latest website. It’s always hard to put together a new website and I really wanted something that stood out from the rest of the boating agents doing the same thing. You were a blessing sent to me! You not only listened to what I wanted, but when you recreated my copy, you excited me with the words you used and then gave me the added bonus of the SEO’s to use.
No request was too hard, time frames were kept and I really feel we have nailed it. I will not only recommend A Worded life to EVERYONE, I will use you again! Thanks again Shel. Awesome!

Rewriting ambiguous sentences and restructuring sentences, paragraphs and sections as required, ensuring there is clarity, a logical sequence and that important information is not omitted.
Line editing to check for spelling, grammar and punctuation errors, inconsistent fonts, capitalisation and alphabetical order.
Honest feedback has the ability to transform your writing, and this is what I offer. I can provide a comprehensive report covering what works and what does not, a sample edit of a section of your manuscript and suggestions on how to move forward to develop your manuscript.

When I first considered setting up a page for my business on Facebook, I had no idea about content, but after consulting with Shel I now have a clear direction. Shel got my page started with some great posts and created a wonderful direct mail marketing letter. Now I have the confidence to keep it all going. Shel has also been fantastic at editing the content for my new website. Shel is confident with whatever task I send her way and she always delivers before the arranged due date!
