"Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer the misplaced commas and run-on sentences of outrageously dull copy: or to arms against a sea of boring content - and by choosing better words, edit them. To type -- to read, no more."
Welcome to the website of Stephen Harber, "The Only Writer Ever". This is a space where wild words can be spotted - as well as a few mixed metaphors from time to time - so be cautious.
Why do they call him The Only Writer Ever?
Keep on reading and you'll find out...
Writing, much like life, is either a daring adventure or nothing at all. My favorite thing about writing is that I'm constantly doing the two things that keeps life exciting: learning and exploring. When taking on new projects, I like to learn about their topics and explore how deep they go.
Okay. So. If you've made it to this page, you might have a few questions.
Great, because I've got answers.
Q: Who is the only writer ever?
A: Stephen Harber. It's pronounced "Steven", not "Stephan". (No worries. I get asked that all the time.)
Q: Are you a boy or a girl?
A: Boy. Well, man actually. I'm like 30 years old.
Q: Are you really the only writer ever?
A: No, if you want to get technical. But I write like I am.
Q: Where do you live?
A: San Francisco, CA.
Q: How come I haven't heard of you before?
A: Because I'm the ninja of words. Or word ninja, if that's easier for you to say. I work from the shadows to help people like you find your voice and be memorable. Except I turn on a light when I'm there, because working in the dark is kind of hard (and creepy).
Q: How can you help my business?
A: I can help you find your brand voice by coming up with style guidelines and values. This includes writing highly readable copy and developing a content strategy.
Q: How can you help my blog/website?
A: I can come up with original witty and creative content that would put BuzzFeed to shame. (But if you're reading, Buzzfeed, let's work together!) Plus, I make my own gifs.
Q: How can you help with my story/comic/script?
A: I can help as a story consultant, editor, and dialogue doctor. Because the story you want tell is totes worth it.
Q: Do you like eggs?
Q: Boiled, fried, scrambled or poached?
A: Hmm. Usually fried. I've never tried poached, believe it or not.
Q: Can I see a pic of you?
A: Sure! Here you go.
