"If I had more time, I would have written a shorter letter." ― Blaise Pascal
Writing is easy. Writing concisely is very hard. Whether it's an op-ed, book excerpt, book, blog, article, newsletter, annual report or case study, the hardest part is cutting it down to the right words. That is also, not surprisingly, the most time-consuming part.
In my 20 years as a writer and editor, including a decade writing and editing for Business NH Magazine, I brought dozens of business stories to life. As an independent writer and editor, I now offer that same service to businesses, executives and media outlets. My services include ghostwriting, writing and editing.
At Business NH Magazine, I learned that the best stories have a personal element. It was there that I started running on my lunch break. But I did not go alone. I took CEOs running and strapped a recorder to their arm. I then shared their personal and professional stories with our readers. Our shared passion for running led to great conversations, and many great stories. Stories can be narratives, or can be data driven. Either way, I make the same promise:
I will be concise.
I will be precise.
I will be respectful.
I will be timely.
I will be creative.
And I will be compelling.
