I took the usual Comp I and Comp II in college as well as Business Letter Writing. I worked for a bank for 25 years and wrote literally hundreds of letters.
I won the Garland County, Arkansas (Hot Springs) spelling bee in 7th grade. I have a real feel for the necessary spelling, of course; however, as you can see from my use of the semi-colon, I also have a grasp for punctuation and paragraphing. I also am very well-read and have a larger-than-average vocabulary.
Since I retired, I have been doing some writing because I enjoy it, but until now I didn't know how to use those skills.
After 25 years of being a businesswoman, I would love to spend the rest of my life getting to do something creative.
Besides my ability to play the piano, I haven't been able to use my creativity a lot.
Thank you for the opportunity.
