Hates Talking About Himself
Thank you for taking a moment to read my blog. What started as a little hobby to keep me busy and active has evolved into something I never expected: A vehicle for a very modest semi-professional writing career.
[Note: I work professionally full-time at a wonderful company who pays me a bit more generously than freelance writing ever would. So CTMQ really is just a hobby.]
I have been contacted by magazine editors as a result of my writing here and have happily accepted freelance commissions – and I’m always willing to write for more. I’ve always enjoyed writing and strongly feel that I’ve honed my craft to the point where I have settled on a subject and style that suits me best.
[Note: I don't really proof or edit most stuff on this site. But I do when I get paid. Which reminds me, I write this massive site for free. I won't write for you for free. Unless you steal something from me and I don't know it, which has happened.]
In the past, I’ve written for two very popular television criticism blogs (under a pseudonym) where I developed both a fanbase (such as it is) and the confidence that I can entertain people through writing. Heck, I was quoted in the New York Times, albeit via my pseudonym. CTMuseumQuest combines my love for travel, exploration, learning, meeting interesting people, humor, and lists – and a diverse group of readers have responded with overwhelming acclaim.
I can write for different audiences and in different styles – though only non-fiction. I am easy to work with, am ridiculously organized and I write insanely quickly and do maintain honesty and integrity even though this is merely a blog. I can turn around a very workable 5000 word assignment within a few days if necessary.
I welcome your inquiries and look forward to working with you in the future.
