PROFESSIONAL / CREATIVE / INSPIRATIONAL FREELANCE WRITING:
For 30+ years I’ve been a professional writer. I’ve written most successfully for nonprofit and small business initiatives, taking time away to serve a sentence or two as the executive leader for a few agencies missioned for change. Those experiences have been tremendously diverse. They also had an overall profound impact on me, even in the cases where substantially successful efforts didn’t bloom as fully as predicted. A couple years ago I decided to hunt for a different path. I wanted to be deeper involved in writing efforts where I could blend the values of action and impact into novels, short stories, movies, and the like — opportunities to tell the tales of regular people as heroes and sheroes. Technology makes this possible.
A couple years ago I decided to hunt for a different path. I wanted to be more deeply involved in writing that might allow me to blend the values of action and impact into more entertainment-oriented pieces — novels, short stories, movies, and the like. My belief, it now seems, is that if people cannot envision how change looks within the realm of the technologies they now appreciate, they will never become the heroes and sheroes that they want to be.
At this point in life, I’m working on building a base of stories — in various shades of doneness — that will lead me towards figuring out exactly what this means. I’ve already discovered that I need to have a body of substance for myself to understand where it is that my stories are heading. This is what I am working on now.
You can see some of the bits, and bytes and even my efforts to peer around the corner of the bight of progress on a site I labeled my AllanShoreCollection. It is a rather diverse collection that may or may not do justice to my work. But it is what I have in the body of this adventure, and I trust you might take a look-see. However, when the opportunity avails itself, I still contract with nonprofit and community efforts needing help with fundraising, project narratives, etc.
BTW: Since I worked as a freelance consultant for several decades, I have something to offer those looking for ghost- or project writing. I’m happy to do either so long as we get along on the attitude and alignment of the basics. Connect and let’s chat about it.
My costs for writing for you are reasonable and negotiable to project specifics.
