The professional bio: Make it snappy. Start with something that helps to tell your story but doesn't sound like a re-hashed resume line. Here's an example: A financial planner hired me to write her professional bio.

This blog is a forum for discussion about several types of writing, including reporting, content writing, marketing copy or blogging. My aim is to offer readers ideas, insight and provoke thinking about issues and trends as they pertain to one of these writing categories. I’m Lisette Hilton, president of Words Come Alive. I’ve been a writer and reporter for more than 20 years. I’ll share some of what I’ve learned from communication experts and as a reporter. I also hope to learn from you. So, be sure to chime in.
