10 Ways Not to Suck at Everything

Welcome to Cities of the Mind

My name is Connor Rickett, and this is the website for my freelance writing company, Cities of the Mind. This page is one part advertising for my business, one part a place to blog about the various challenges inherent in this career, pass along tips and tricks, and network with other freelancers. I'm sure I'll put something much more clever and engaging here soon, but right now I'm just trying to make this website look alright again.

Connor is a very dedicated writer, committed to succeeding at his craft. I hired him to write short articles for the former incarnation of my company, ArtScienceFun, LLC, which was seeking to make science more fun for the general populous through the use of art. The articles he wrote were pithy, witty, and topical. It was the weekly column of science writing. Unfortunately, the company folded, but Connor’s desire to write remains.

What Can I Do for You?


I can do interviews and investigations, but, due to Arizona Law, only in my capacity as a writer, e.g. I can only find out if your wife is cheating on you if I write a blog or a book about it. Could be an interesting book, though. . .


You’re righting not so gud? I fix 4U 4 $$$!1!

But seriously, that’s something I can do. Because there’s a blurry line between “editing” and “rewriting the whole darn thing,” I charge accordingly.

General Writing

Writing. I write pages of paragraphs of sentences of words of letters, and you give me money, preferably of dollars. Anything you can want, I can write.
