David - The Uncommon Scribe

Who are you?

I'm David - pleased to meet you.  That's me over there.

<points to the picture of the handsome chap>

I've written ever since I was able to hold a pencil, enjoyed it immensely and, if I do say so myself, turned out to be pretty good at it. But life doesn't always go as planned, and so I found myself unexpectedly having a 35 year career in IT. 

Then due to more unexpected and unplanned 'life' happening I suddenly found myself not having a career in IT any more.

So I decided it was time to put those writing skills to use...

...welcome to The Uncommon Scribe!


Why 'The Uncommon Scribe'?

A scribe was a writer in the days before printing, and one of the definitions of 'uncommon' is 'exceptional or remarkable'.

That works for me!

What do you do?

I write.  Specifically I write for you.  And within reason, I'll write anything you need.  Need a blog post?  A magazine article?  A bedtime story for your children?  Something interesting for a Social media campaign?  I can help.

Typically my work tends towards the humorous end of the spectrum. I rarely use one word where I can cram five in.  And I view both grammar and punctuation as things to be bent to my will rather than rules to be followed.


Like all the best writers, I'm not for everyone.  If you need something safe and corporate that won't scare the cat, then I'd humbly suggest that you engage the services of one of the many other excellent writers available to you.

But if you're looking for something just a bit different, then get in touch.  I may just be able to help.

I'm not seeing a long list of previous clients... why is that?

I'm new!  As mentioned above, I spent most of my working life in IT.  So while I've done plenty of writing, most of it was on an 'enthusiastic amateur' basis.  I have done some work for magazines and websites in the past, as you can see from the examples.

We all started somewhere.  And this is me.  Starting.  Do you want to be able to look back and say "I hired him back when he was a complete unknown, and look at him now!"

I'm offering you exposure, so you'll write for free, right?

Ah, the distasteful subject of money!

One of the less pleasant side effects of the rise of Social Media is the birth of the so-called 'influencer'.  They feel that because they're talking about your product or service, that they deserve to receive that product or service free and for gratis.  Because in their mind, they're doing you a favour.  

I do not subscribe to this theory.

I value my time and I value my work and it commands a fair price.  That said, everything's negotiable, so if you have something that you need written, then get in touch and let's find an arrangement that suits us both.

Your website looks... how shall I put it?  Homemade.

I'm a writer, not a web designer.  When I'm rich and famous (or just rich) I'll hire someone to smarten this up for me.  For now, just know that while my design skills are... questionable... my writing skills are not.  


I'll deliver what you need, when you need it.
