who am i

HI. I’M AMANDA. I’VE BEEN WRITING SINCE I WAS 6. I’VE EVEN GOTTEN A LITTLE BIT BETTER AT IT SINCE THEN. BY AGE 11, I WROTE A SERIES, BABYSITTER’S CLUB AND SWEET VALLEY-INSPIRED, APT FOR THE EARLY 90S. I GOT THE BIGGEST MIDDLE FINGER PENCIL-BUMP FROM DOING SO. I STILL HAVE A SLIGHTLY MISALIGNED FINGER AS A RESIDUAL EFFECT OF SAID BUMP. I’M SURPRISED THERE WAS NEVER A CLASS ACTION SUIT AGAINST MEAD (#2). TODAY, I USE PENS. AND I MEAN THAT. I HAVE YET TO SUCCUMB TO THE PRESENT WHERE EVERY WORD I WRITE IS ON AN IPAD OR IN ACRONYM-TONGUE, FYI. I SPEAK TO THE INEVITABLE LOSS OF PAPER, PENS, PENCILS, AND BOOKS A LOT IN MY PERSONAL WRITING. I AM VERY FAHRENHEIT 451 LIKE THAT. PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT IT IS THAT YOU NEED WRITTEN THROUGH THE CONTACT FORM OR BY EMAILING ME AT APAL2133@GMAIL.COM. I CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN, FROM CHEEKY TO CORPORATE. I HAVE WON AWARDS IN JOURNALISM, BLOGGED IN HOLLYWOOD, GHOST-WRITTEN FOR LOCAL CHAMBER OF COMMERCE, AND WHIPPED UP AD COPY IN NEW YORK. MY FREELANCE VENTURES ARE NOW RUN THROUGH MY COMPANY, RED HERRING MEDIA. IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT A “RED HERRING” IS, GOOGLE IT. AND THEN TRY TO FIGURE OUT JUST WHEN THE WORD “GOOGLE” BECAME A WIDELY-ACCEPTED VERB
