I am a 22-year-old woman from Dayton, Ohio. I recently graduated from Wright State University with a Bachelor in Arts in English with a concentration in Language Arts Education or English Education. I am currently pursuing a professional job that will utilize my skills in talents earned through my degree. My boyfriend’s name is Taylor and we have been dating for almost four years. We have a wired haired fox terrier named Moe. My boys make sure to always keep me on my toes! I am an energetic, hard-working person that is looking to step outside of my daily life to expand my horizons.
I created this blog after meeting with the Senior Writer/Editor/Owner of Dragonfly Editorial located in Tipp City, Ohio. I was searching on LinkedIn.com for jobs and to make network connections. Searching for various companies in the Dayton area, I came across Dragonfly Editorial. After familiarizing myself with their website, I came across multiple types of links and publications that I found interesting for writing, editing, and copyediting/writing. I came across the profile of the Owner on LinkedIn and she openly invited others looking to explore the copyediting/writing, writing, and editing industries to contact her. To make a long story short, we met in late December at a small coffee shop in Troy, Ohio. This small opportunity has set my life in motion in ways that I could have never predicted. At the end of our meeting, I was given a to-do list to accomplish. My to-do list consisted of: picking up a copy of the latest Chicago Style Manual and to become familiar with it, picking up two work books that would allow me to further explore copyediting/writing, to join the Dayton Creative Syndicate, to build a Portfolio, to research WordPress.com and maybe try blogging, to create a g-mail account, and learn how to use google documents. I have picked up all three works as recommended and am in the process of going through them, joined the Dayton Creative Syndicate, researched WordPress, am trying blogging, created a g-mail account, and learned how to use google documents. I am working on various ways to build a Portfolio and this blog is part of it. I never expected a to-do list to make such a profound impact, but so far it has set me on an amazing journey.
