Proofreading & Copy Editing
Good writing is all about rewriting. We draft first, to get our thoughts down on the page, and then, we must revise. Even the best scribe doesn’t get it right the first time. A second pair of well-trained eyes serves to notice errors yours may have missed.
Do you need a word doctor? I’ll give your written work a vitality check and breathe new life into your words, transforming them to the best they can be! Look to me for feedback on the following:
I will review your work and comment on it electronically through Microsoft Word, indicating areas that need improvement. You’ll have the ability to accept the suggested alterations or reject them.
You can feel secure knowing that I do not sell, transfer, or share your personal information or your work with anyone else. All documents I review and/or edit for you remain your intellectual property.
The critique I offer is a blend of proofreading and copyediting services. Here’s a short list of the types of items I will point out: grammar, spelling, and punctuation errors; faulty parallelism; lack of clarity and flow while maintaining consistency with your personal style; subject-verb disagreement; incorrect verb tense; sentence structure problems; improper citation formatting; omitted or repeated words; and so much more!
Let’s make your writing project the best it can be. Together, we can do this!
