Howdy friend! I'm Julius, a quite, a bit shy, but easy going guy... Thanks for stopping by! At My Writers Bureau, I write for my readers and clients, meanwhile honing my writing skills. I like writing sentences that match out, one after another, polished and crisp, like soldiers on a parade ground! And I can help you do the same. Starting this blog, just out of a hobby, and seeing it growing pretty fast, is a joy! Help me to spread the word.
