Service Description

* The old adage is, "The proof is in the pudding." If you look at my "pudding," you will see the proof of my ability to produce, proofread and edit written material.
* My greatest strength is in proofreading and edting, including rewriting. I have not only been writing articles for a local publication, but editing other authors' articles. This has been through the exchange of manuscripts with the editor via e-mail. Each edited article is accompanied by editorial notes explaining the changes made. I was asked by the editor to assist because of the quality of my own writings.
* I am also an inventor, and have designed emblems and product logos, as well as artistic and technical drawings, for several inventions and general ideas. This also involves the crafting of trade names for products. It has been on my own, but provided experience in these skill areas.
* I am quick to spot indications of ESL (English as a second language) in what I read, and I am ready to amend writing to conform to standard American English.
* I have done writing and editing for other people. For one local business, I format conference brochures and programs and a testimonial booklet. I have also reviewed and critiqued novels for another author.
Several of the articles I edit require research to identify or verify sources and maintain the accuracy of quotes.
