Why am I Successful?


 
Why am I a successful medical writer? Because I "Write Right." I am clear, complete, consistent, concise -- all the things that medical writing demands.

More Free Time Just Appeared!

In addition to my full-time medical writing job, I have been the Chairman of the Board for a 3000-member outdoors volunteer organization. And now my 2-year term has ended as the new Chair was voted in. This had taken about 20 hrs/wk -- so, as you can imagine, on top of my paying-work, I had a significant volunteer commitment! Whew! It was great experience. But, maybe now I'll have time to clean the house and rake the leaves.
