I am a freelance writer/blogger. I was born in 1984. At the age of 3, I saw Dirty Dancing with Patrick Swayze and that sums up (and explains) a lot of things about me: I love dancing, I love handsome/romantic men who can move. I also love swing and rocknroll. Oh, and I am addicted to movies.<br /> <br /> I have been writing ever since I could remember. I have started writing stories at 12 and haven't stopped since. I am going through a major writer's blog with my current story, but hey- been there, done that so nothing I can't eventually overcome.<br /> <br /> Currently I have been putting most of my efforts into my blog: <a rel="nofollow" href="http://pinartarhan.com/blog/" target="_blank">http://pinartarhan.com/blog/</a> where I write about movies, music, blogging, writing, books, career management and well, basically anything I want to write. I can't stick to one topic and keeping one blog for each subject is extremely difficult (trust me, I tried). The blog is my baby. It doesn't feature my fiction but it is as fun and entertaining as non-fiction can get. Fingers crossed, the visitors are having at least half as much fun as I am writing it. And I love comments so feel free to comment away.<br /> <br /> I also have 3 other blogs: <br /> <br /> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://21stcenturydatingandrelationships.blogspot.com/" target="_blank">Dating & Relationships in the 21st Century</a> on darting & relationships in the modern world. Sarcastic, romantic& fun.<br /> <div> <div class="header section"> <div class="widget Header"> <div> <div class="titlewrapper"> </div> <div class="descriptionwrapper"> <p class="description"><span> </span></p> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://beautyandfitnessforthefunlovinggirl.blogspot.com/" target="_blank">Beauty, Fitness & Style for the Fun-Loving Gal</a> unconvetional and fun beauty/style/fitness tips & ideas.<a rel="nofollow" href="http://makemoneywritingandblogging.blogspot.com/" target="_blank"><br /> </a> <div class="titlewrapper"> </div> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://makemoneywritingandblogging.blogspot.com/" target="_blank"><br /> Make Money Writing & Blogging Without Spending</a> for writers&bloggers who don't have (much) money to invest<br /> <div class="titlewrapper"> </div> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> Education? Yeah, that. I have a BA in Business Administration and I double-majored in Advertising. I have work experience working for an advertising agency, a PR agency and the sales-marketing department of Coca-Cola. I also freelanced as a translator a couple of times and worked part-time as a marketer/relationships manager for a music website. Combine that with all the job interviews I have been to and the writer/observer in me and lastly with all the job interviews and office stories of my friends and you will know where my career-management background comes from.<br /> <br /> I love travelling. So far I have been to Holland, England, Canada, Norway,Sweeden, Italy, Germany and Finland.<br /> My favorite place on earth is so far California. But I am dying to see Spain and Australia. Oh, and Scotland and Ireland as well.<br /> <br /> That's me in a nutshell. If you want to talk about writing or just about anything in general, drop me a line.<br /> <br /> Pinar <br /> twitter: zoeyclark<br /> e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org<br /> email@example.com<br /> <br />
