Had my education long enough ago that I know the difference between site, sight and cite as well as its and it's and their, they're and there.
Hi, I'm Eric I've personally been involved in the bdsm community for over ten years and have been reading erotica for about thirteen years.
Hours per week could be more or less, if I go visit family. I know everyone is on a timeline, but I will not let spelling and grammar pass just to get the story out. And creativity is directly proportional to ones imagination. Professional writing of letters, reports, evaluations. Spent 10 years in regular/militia (Canadian Armed Forces). I had a brief experience with an author but never heard whether or not he was satisfied, never got any more requests and did not see any new writings so have I believe that by and large standard written English provides the greatest reading enjoyment.
Correct, positive, and right the first time means you do not have to go back and redo it. I also believe in artistic license when used artistically, and that editing should in no way affect the essence of the author's vision. If required , will provide my address & phone numbers.
I finished editing for an Author and I am free until he gives me more work. I am very good at finding wrong words, missing letters, weird sentences, etc. Just let me know your preferences and we will go from there! BA in Classic litterature, with a part-time job as a journalist, reinvented myself and currently working as a RN specialized in neurosciences (neurology and neurosurgery mostly) I also speak french if you need it in your story.
Feedback to my 1st Author: "Good writing that is very engaging, and your editor / proofreader seems to have done an excellent job." I finished my 1st e Book and am now uploading it. and I believe a lot of low scores I see are due to poor or no editing breaking the flow of your stories. I am an author with several stories on SOL and I have assisted to edit for several others.
Been there, done that, made it home more or less in one piece and I'm not too screwed up (I think, but I don't worry to much about what other people think). Some French, German, Czech, and Arabic, if those are of any use to you. Navy Vet, No college (school of hard knocks) but I seem to recognize a grammatical error when I see one. Willing to build a relationship as an editor then maybe do some fledgling attempts as a writer.
A good command of the English language, including grammar, syntax, spelling, and punctuation. I'm trained as a translator (text, not speech.)I'll be aiming for readability and smoothness. Like, Woodmanone, Aubie56, SWmohermit, DGhear, Justplainbob, Howard Faxon, Curious2c,many others of that type I've been downloading the stories here and reformating them for printing, using MS Word... I have an Associates Degree, 2 Bachelors Degree, a Masters Degree, and a Doctorates Degree.Proofreading with limited grammar correction-looking more to ease of reading than school-proper.Not being creative myself, looking more to help those that are and not planning on giving advice. Not to say hey you screwed up but because I believe the amount creativity the author puts into their written art mind blowing.College Graduate I used to edit SEC documents annual report and 10K's and 10Q's. What I will find are misspellings and when you pick the wrong word off the spell checker. It started with Jules Vern stories when I was in elementary school. Never been an editor before but have some time to contribute.I'm not the best speller, but I can spot a miss-spelled word and poorly used grammar or sentence structure pretty quickly and usually figure out what the Author is trying to communicate/say to the reader (not always but most of the time) :). Honorably discharged Marine in the early 70's and b/4 anyone asks yes, yes and yes. Don't know what type of software is required but willing to purchase (within reason) any that would be required.I'm a 40 year old male residing in Bangalore, India. Alternate email : [email protected] editing for 4 writers on SOL.
