Research Writer Interview With Marlee

Composing Essays On Anything

Hi Marlee, you may be the youngest writer onboard. :) What qualifies you to write for Custom Papers?

I am still in college myself but I have been writing for a long time, as a little girl I loved it. For the last three or four years, I have been working as a freelance writer and an academic ghost writer. I work for a couple of different companies writing SEO articles and before Custom Papers hired me, I had my own academic ghost writing business. I have been very successful as an academic ghost writer and I have not scored less than an A-. I don't want to jinx anything though! I have also gained a lot of quality experience writing answers to a love advice column in my college's newspaper; I have had the opportunity to work with both wise and talented English professors.

I use where I am in life to my advantage. Since I am still in college, I know what professors are looking for, I know the criteria that they cover, and I am especially familiar with all of the plagiarism laws and detectors. Not to mention, grammar, mechanics, and citing rules are fresh in my mind. At the same time, being young and being a student means that I have to prove myself more. I never turn any writing assignment in that I would not be proud to hand in myself; quality writing and good grades are very important to me. Plus, when I read an essay with bad grammar and mechanics it drives me crazy.

Why have you chosen to pursue a career in writing?

Because I don't have the patience to be a doctor! Just joking, I have a deep love and passion for writing. I have always enjoyed writing and I am good at it. I am always trying to further my skills and on top of excelling greatly in college English courses, I also engage in extracurricular writing classes. It's amazing to get paid for doing something that I love BUT I don't do this for the money (honestly)! I take great pride in my writing and I feel a true sense of accomplishment when I have written a quality essay.

What do you do in your free time?

Free time? What is that? Honestly, I don't recall many moments in the past few years that I have had absolutely nothing to do. I enjoy being busy which is why I take part in a lot of different activities. Like I stated before, I have a number of ongoing freelance writing jobs which takes up any time that I am not doing school work. I am an artist so every once in a while I find the opportunity to paint or work in Photoshop but that's very seldom.

My friends make fun of me because I spend most of my time writing other people's essays. They're always asking me, "So, whose homework are you doing today?" I write short fiction and poetry as well. I recently sent in a bunch of stories to literary magazines and I'm waiting to hear back from them.

Are there any types of essays that you particularly like or dislike?

There are not any specific topics per say that I really like or dislike. I enjoy researching and learning about new topics so I will take on just about anything. At the same time, if I do come across an essay request that I would feel uncomfortable taking, I have no problem turning it down. I don't want to take on any essays that I won't be able to produce the highest quality essay possible. I am open minded though, and I love a challenge.

Do you think that academic writing services are unethical?

I do not think that these services are unethical and if I did I would not take part in one. If a student has a huge workload, they're busy, or they simply don't want to write, I don't see anything wrong with paying for a custom paper. What is wrong, in my opinion, is when a student has no time or desire to write so instead of seeking outside help, they use plagiarism to write their paper. Obviously the student cares enough about his or her grades to pay for a custom paper that suits all of the needs of the assignment. As long as declining to write the paper doesn't damage their quality of learning, I say to each his (or her) own.

Why Custom Papers opposed to another research and writing service?

For one, I am very impressed with the team of writers at Custom Papers. As I went through and read about the different writers, I was pleasantly surprised to see the diversity. There are people from so many different backgrounds with so many different experiences and I was very pleased about that. I am confident that any essay or assignment will be put in good hands.

That's about it, are there any other interesting facts that you'd like to share about yourself?

Well, I am a coffeeholic, I love writing (obviously), I love animals, I am a Graphic Design major, I'm an Insomniac, I enjoy long walks on the beach, I'm not a movie or TV person, I am very superstitious, I'm sarcastic, I like garlic pizza, and I am really looking forward to writing for Custom Papers! I enjoyed answering these engaging questions, thanks for the interview!
