I have several short stories that need RUSH editing/proofreading. They are rough and need a lot of work. A lot of sentences in all-caps that should be converted to upper/lower. A lot of exclamation points that need to be taken out to make the pieces stronger.

Needs to be done in Microsoft Word with Track Changes turned ON.

Need to start TONIGHT, Friday, at around 9pm Eastern.

Must be returned to me TOMORROW, Saturday, at around 7pm Eastern.

Native American English speakers only.

Sorry for the list of demands, but I want to make sure that the provider is qualified, fast, and deadly accurate.

Word count: Approximately 12,000

Give me your best, most competitive price.

One warning -- there may be some swear words in the stories and just generally some content of a sexual nature. Not all of them, though, and not porn by any stretch. They're the rantings of an old man, basically.
