This writer does not have any industry experience listed on their profile.
Melody especially loves the article format because in conveying the information with or without the slant of a position, it opens a dialogue to a broad audience. She enjoys the ever-changing variety of topics usually on offer in this type of writing and has mainly written articles which were not part of her jobs in the science field.
Melody has completed but not yet published a fiction novel in the womenâ€™s literature genre. One of her favorite features of this mode of writing is the ability to take the reader on a longer journey, with time enough to become invested in the elements of a story or viewpoint before rounding the curves ahead. She also enjoys that the research usually required for a lengthy project teaches the writer a lot as well.
