Writing and editing share a common goal – to communicate effectively. Good writing and good editing are based on the same principles – clarity, precision, balance, adherence to the rules of grammar and style, and appropriates for the intended audience
Many writers find it difficult to edit their own writing. To solve this problem, they turn to a pair of trained eyes to evaluate what they have written. Together, writers and editors try to produce the perfect sentence, the perfect paragraph, or the perfect book. This is where I can help you.
With over 4 years of experience in freelance writing and editing, I can provide your work with a fresh set of eyes, coupled with the knowledge necessary to perfect your work. Please note: it is neither my policy, nor an innate aspect of my personality, to criticize your work. Instead, I want to work with you so that you can achieve the masterpiece final draft you have always dreamed about. Consequently, you should not let the stereotypical image of an editor deter you from finalizing your work.
When editing or proofreading, I adhere to the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers for academic writing and The New York Public Library Writer’s Guide to Style and Usage for general reference. I use Webster’s New Collegiate Dictionary for dictionary reference.
