I’ve loved editing and proofreading ever since my dad hired me to edit his telephone directory when I was thirteen.
Okay. That’s a bit of a stretch.
I didn’t quite love editing and proofreading then, when I checked people’s names, addresses, and telephone numbers over and over again, but I didn’t hate it. And more important, that’s when I realized that I was a skilled editor and proofreader, and that not everyone had those abilities or enjoyed exercising them.
Since then, I’ve built on my public and academic editing skills by adding sports programs, engine manuals, and journal articles, among other genres, to my repertoire.
This is what I love about editing and proofreading: that I’m helping others make their writing projects stronger.
I’m not going to lie; I also love the thrill I get when I find a typo.
Please check out my new editing page. I look forward to working with you!
