Behold one of the most impressive Essays.ph writer timelines – Meoantolin’s

---18 January 2014 - joined Essays.ph
---23 January 2014 - joined TR
---27 Jan 2014 – promoted to prime writer status
---20 February 2014 – passed TR screening and became a regular member
---04 Apr 2014 - promoted to Elite team status

Yes, our featured writer of the week got promoted to the Prime writers’ team less than 10 days after joining, and made it to Elite writer status in a little more than 3 months!

Meoantolin’s work is so good that whenever I feel the need to salvage a bad work day, I just chose to review his work, and then sit back and relax.

So how does he do it? We don’t really know much about the enigma that is Meoantolin. We could only hope to take a closer look at what he does.

A (functioning) walking contradiction

Meo’s fortitude is unparalleled. He has been tested time and again by life; so much so that he now lives by these words: Trust on everyone. Rely on no one. Depend on yourself. However, he has that rare mixture of pragmatism and romanticism. It’s understandable, but instead of becoming bitter, he still sees the beauty of being human, and manages to make the most of what he can do, and oh boy, this man can do A LOT. Just like his friend Tanya, he has a self-imposed daily word count requirement. He also dabbles in the study of the human psyche and maintains his hubpages domain, and the most amazing of all - he also makes beautiful music. He already wrote two songs!

Steady as he goes
Meo never misses a deadline. His work ethics is incredible. When he says that he is going to complete a project within a specific timeframe, he will - all obstacles be damned. He is reliable to a fault – he would work even when isn’t feeling too well. :( We only wish he'd cut himself some slack every once in a while.

Living more than a little
Meo claims that he lives only a little, but you only need to listen to his covers to know that is too passionate for that. He even went cliff-diving last February. If that's not what living, I don't know what is. He does not have a lot of friends but what he lacks in number-of-friends, me makes up for in the connection he has with the friends he does have. In the words of one such friend “He is the kind of friend that would laugh at your ridiculous jokes.” Meo also dreams of one day riding a lawnmower. He dotes on his pup, Bradley.

Communication
Whenever he feels unsure about project details, he sends us a message. He also does not wait until the last minute to let us know that a project may be delayed – the only problem is, his submissions are NEVER delayed. When an emergency comes up, he also never fails to let us know. He is one of the very few writers we do not need a follow-up message from.

Helping yourself before forcing others to do it for you
As a newbie, it was obvious that he had read the manual thoroughly. He sometimes asks a ton of questions before claiming a set – and all of them are good questions i.e. not something that could be answered by google, or by reading the manual.

God is in the details
Meo wants the littlest details in his work to be perfect. One time, he sent me and Sir Nelson a message, panicking over forgetting to include one heading in a table of contents. Of course, Sir Nelson promptly told him not to worry about it because it’s just a minor issue, but it shows how he continues to scrutinize his work even after submission.




The rest about Meoantolin is not my story to tell. You can pester him about it, but the better option is probably to just leave him alone and hear him sing. You might know him a little better after, you might not. But you’re better off knowing that you just listened to a soul you aren’t going to find anywhere else.


I leave you with words of wisdom from Meo:

"Do not wait for a revision request before asking questions."
"Hindi mo mapapatunayan ang pagiging cute mo sa pagiging last-commenter."
"Make ways, not excuses."
"Always remember that what you can learn from reading -- you can learn in real life better."
"Always focus on what the client wants. Sometimes, it doesn't matter if it's factual or if you believe in it. You are paid to WRITE, not to preach truth."
"Mag claim din ng FAs every once in a while -- dagdag pogi points din yan."
Ask yourself all these questions before sending me a message (yes, I might not reply to questions that could have been answered by just reading the manual):

Am I 100 percent sure the answer is not in the manual? (Learn how to use the ctrl-F function)
Am I 100 percent sure the answer is not already in the private message sent to me?
Have I tried googling for answers?
Have I checked the training center?


Note: I am NOT available on Sundays and Mondays.
Best times to reach me:
Tuesdays to Saturdays 2 PM to 10 PM

I still remember the time Meo joined TR (halos sabay lang ata kami), and I still remember the time I ogled when I noticed the Elite Writer badge under his profile pic. I mean, three months! He is just AMAZING. This is the type of guy who I won't be surprised to learn turns into a superhero at night. He just has the perfect mind, heart and soul for it.

A versatile writer (na lately lang naging picky sa pagpili ng set :lol:) and a kindhearted soul--nawa'y dumami pa ang mga katulad nya. :)

Mabuhay ka, Meo! :D
SMS me at 09173517047 for any concerns. You may do so at any time, but since Sunday and Monday are my days off, you may not get a response from me right away on those days. Please don't forget to include your username when you send me an SMS.

IMPORTANT! Please read Ms. Savingbutterflies's post about why editors are allowed to reject assignments (i.e. no opportunity for revisions).

I have only one rule: COMPLY BEFORE YOU COMPLAIN. :)
