Dear Freelance [Writer] Employers

I’ve always wanted to do this—write a letter or blog post to my future employer. I feared putting this out there for many reasons, including but not limited to the visions of crickets—it’ll get ignored. And HR has enough resumes and applicants in their candidate portal. But it’s doubt alone why I’ve decided to take action and publish this. So, let’s have fun with it.

Unlike you, my name’s Terrell. I’m an Indie Author, Creative Writer, and Poet publishing under the pen name Budd [Hansen]. I’ve dreamed of becoming a versatile full-time writer since I was six.


Because of Doug Funnie.

And I’ve always been able to abstract things down to its core. I have a way of breaking down physical and abstract structures to a point where they’re nothing.

For example, when I was a kid, I’d unscrew my remote-control cars, take apart the body, undo the wiring, all to understand the motor’s mechanism. I’d also read the ‘A’ book of my father’s World Book Encyclopedia collection after discovering my obsession with airplanes. And because after ‘Airplane’ comes a place, you wouldn’t dare guess I dream of writing from someday, I’d go into a rabbit hole in the Antarctica section.

Over the last three years, I’ve learned meditation to regulate my anxiety, wrote four books, and started a podcast. Since then, I understand anything is possible with commitment, passion, and trusting the process.

By the way, that process is you reading this.

Subject Matters I Can Cover:

•           Meditation Practices and Well-Being

•           Creative Writing Process

•           Poetry, Rhyming Rule for Lyrics, etc.

•           Personal Development and Inspiration

•           Research for List Articles

•           Short Stories (Politics, Humor, Culture, etc.)

I’m eager to experience a committed opportunity with a company or individual driven by a cause benefiting a community. My ability to break down concepts has been my strength which served me well during previous roles. It’s allowed me to communicate complex structures, issues, and processes.

After seeing so many stories and statistics this year about people leaving their jobs, I get it—I left three in the last four years. All decisions were risks that panned out well for me—in that I can appreciate the space and time it takes to understand what I want and how to pursue it.

And that’s to have fun on this opportunity search.

I’m open to remote full-time employment, preferably around consulting, aviation, wellness or a department’s staff writer.

Thank you for your time and consideration. Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions or concerns.
