"It would seem that perfection
is attained not when no more can be added,
but when no more can be removed."
I used to think that writing well meant writing lots of words. It took me a long time to accept that the opposite is true.
After I write a first draft of an article, a corporate website, a brochure, or a restaurant review, I revisit each word to make sure it's the perfect choice, that it works seamlessly with the surrounding copy, and that it embraces the client's tone and style.
I have eighteen years' experience drafting business and editorial copy that informs, convinces, and entertains. And I was selected to teach these skills to George Brown College students in the journalism and culinary programs between Fall 2009 and Spring 2011.
