Hello all, I have a few sections from a new work needing a few people over the next week or two.
A sample of the work is attached.
• Requires proofread of 10,000 words or a bit under and a general check they read well.
• Rephrase sentences when they are hard to understand, have too many unnecessary words or need their grammar corrected.
“Thanks for approaching this carefully, and for actually trying to understand the meaning and providing example sentence rewrites (which some editors do not apply themselves to, gurr!) It's better to put those in and give the author some kind of solution even if they go with something slightly different later. Your results make the job quick and easy for both author and editor. I hardly made any changes to your suggestions.”
“Thanks for the feedback. I go deep into any writing that I put my red pen to and try to understand what the author wants to convey. I prefer offering them solution through what I call constructive editing to merely fixing grammar errors and tightening sentences.”
Freelancer Feedback Comments for Client:
