Content was produced, but took far longer than 3 days to nail down a solid draft. The writing style was adequate, but not as precise and formal as I was looking for (and further revisions are not possible, given the deadline for the work). I will continue to edit the document myself in order to perfect it. Freelancer was professional and courteous throughout the project.

    I read my first books last year. From then on, my interest grew more in them. The helped me make my grip on English language stronger. I worked on my vocubulary more and more as read books further. Later in time, i got a tendency to write. I didnt know how i would but i gave it a go. Since then, i wrote a few short stories which were appreciated as much. And Later, I found out that i can make a good use of this skill, therefore I considered to start freelancing.
