I have a ~500 page personal journal in Microsoft Word. It has been compiled over the years.

I am looking for someone who can run through the document with a basic Word spell checker and make a best guess at corrections through the document. I am also looking for the removal of some carriage returns in between paragraphs to make the document consistent in spacing.

I can describe in greater detail and have attached an excerpt from the document to illustrate what I'm talking about and to help providers develop a better price estimate.

Before selecting the provider, I would like to talk by phone for 10 minutes to make sure they understand the scope. This is pretty basic stuff - although the document is long. Assuming one minute per page, this is about a 10 hour job.
