On Being a Writer …

Being an effective writer derives from being a voracious reader, despite the penchant to edit everything you read.

It comes from being in the right place at the right time and The Need to Know. How do things work? What drives people? Why did this happen?

It requires minute timing to catch the right glance, word, message. It is born of an innate gene to hone in on input. It permeates our cores where a need for answers drives us relentlessly.

And yes, a large part of it may just be due to a lifetime of curiosity. However, fine-tuning is imperative. People not only read what we have to say, but they should also be compelled to do so. Often that occurs through my photos, although more frequently through my words.

I live among you with a microscope on the absurd, the mundane and anything else that falls in my path. I walk through life as others do, but am more energized by running and jumping. I talk – with relish! – but hear more than the average person does when I listen. I hear the grass grow. I hear hearts break. I hear the whispers of the past, the uncertain promise of the future, and what is the only relevant constant, the present.

I find life continually interesting; it’s always necessary to Tell the Stories.

It’s noisy most of the time, though – life is messy.

I’ve worked in all of it – from newspapers, magazines, books and online to creating copy for brochures, websites, catalogs, public relations gigs and greeting cards. Each was uniquely challenging and I’ve loved it all. The true soul of a writer doesn’t entail penning reviews about vampire movies or blogging about my little microcosm. Writers shouldn’t box themselves in creatively.

A successful day is one in which I have learned; I welcome every sunrise that delivers interesting things that I can then reflect back through words or photos.

Enjoy what I consider accomplishments and the moments that stand still in my photographs. When it’s all said and done, know that I did my best to Tell the Stories. And, let them stand the test of time.

Wendy Clem is a Michigan-based writer/photographer whose greatest joy is laughter. She especially loves culling today’s news and interpreting it for people with intelligence. She profusely apologizes, but she really can’t help herself.

After all, she’s an Aquarian, with Libra rising, the sun in her head and moon in her pants. And when she speaks in the third person, she needs chocolate. Stat.

Let me help you with your business or project with my more than 25 years’ expertise in writing, editing, media services, proofreading and photography. To that end, I also bring 20+ years of experience in social media, stretching from prehistoric blogging at Livejournal all the way into The Modern Times with witty banter at Facebook, and much more. I am especially adept with business and marketing needs, understanding hyperlinking, SEO, photographic placement and how to make the written word sell your service or product. I can help you by determining whatever it takes to get your message to those who need to receive it.

"...In the 15 years of being in business, no one has written a better article about what I do better than Wendy did. Not only was I proud to have such a talented writer publish an outstanding article about me, it has become one of the most lucrative advertising tools I have ever used. Because of Wendy’s skill and talent, my passion and love for what I do came across in her writing. She is an outstanding writer…”

From business owner Sue Kulongowski of Beary Unique Contemporary Crafts

“Not only was Wendy a great colleague, she was additionally an impeccable example of outstanding journalistic drive, dedication and integrity…She is a team player while maintaining her individuality, a balance that many have difficulty achieving. With technical writing skills as second nature, Wendy had the unique ability to shift from hard news to feature stories in an instant. She quickly adapted, giving 110% daily. For Wendy, success does not occur by luck or chance but, rather, as an outcome of her hard work and perseverance…” From Donna Edwards, Director of Communications & Education Initiatives at ArtServe Michigan: “Wendy is an exceptional writer, accurate editor, and dedicated. Wendy volunteered to work at ArtServe during a period where we had more work than my one-person office could manage...working side-by-side with me, just like a paid staff member, and never complained about the level or amount of work that was expected. She was always on deadline and her writing was flawless…”

From Detroit Daily Press coworker, Wayne County reporter Elizabeth Hoyt

“…as a feature writer and beat reporter, Ms. Clem consistently displayed solid news judgment, original and engaging storytelling style and the ability to turn over clean copy under tight deadlines. Due to her strengths in these areas and her interest in pitching and pursuing her own unique story ideas, she quickly became my ‘go-to’ writer and close friend and continued to serve as lead feature reporter until the section was discontinued due to budget issues…her integrity, honesty, creativity and hard work ethic made her an invaluable addition…”
