Lisa-Beth proof-read a script for me. She is an amazing proofreader who went beyond the call of duty and got my script back to me a week earlier than expected. Thanks Lisa-Beth! You are awesome!
Chris O’Toole took on the Sisyphean task of: 1) proofreading; 2) providing a general critique: and 3) giving insight on whether and how to move forward on my draft play and associated essay. Mr. O’Toole use the yellow highlighter feature in Word to show his proofreading suggestions. I am still finding grammatical and word choice errors. This may well be because—due to my limited eye-sight— I didn’t see all his yellow highlights in making my corrections. He provided a general, dip-lomatic, thoughtful critique of the play’s subject matter; use of metaphors, poetry, and language; and connection with a reader or an audience. In making and evaluating my decision to hire an editor in general and Mr. O’Toole specifically, I looked at five factors: 1) experience and expertise; 2) cost; 3) turn-around time; 4) interactions; and 5) quality of work. Regarding the first, while I do not know Mr. Toole’s experience with plays, his website clearly indicates significant experience in editing other forms of professional writing. I believe the quality of editors’ websites and offers of services is a good indicator of their knowledge of and skill in teaching clients like me how to connect with their readers and audiences. Regarding cost, other editors I consulted charged on an hourly or a per page basis while Mr. Toole, in this first editing interaction, offered a very reasonable flat fee. There are pluses and minuses with each ap-proach. A flat fee was best for me for the initial editing of a draft play. The third factor is crucial for most authors working on deadlines. Mr. O’Toole sent me his edits and critique within two weeks. A second editor I contacted told me she could not get to my draft until January. Fourth, ed-iting is a collaborative enterprise: an editor needs to know the writer’s audience, intent, focus, and voice to help that author create his or her best work. Mr. O’Toole gave me feedback and questions on the writing sample I originally sent him. He sent me a follow-up email—with a targeted ques-tion--while editing my manuscript. Overall, I am happy with the initial editing efforts Mr. O’Toole gave me: professional; cost-effective; timely; and interactive. I am still rolling around the four page, shiny, rock critique he also gave me: gold or dross; foundational, aspirational, or weighing down: moving the draft higher or back into an inky sea? Whatever it ultimately is, he initiated a thought provoking internal and external conversation for/with a novice playwright just as my response here illustrates the meta-phorical challenges Mr. O’Toole confronted in critiquing and advising me on my writing.
Guitta helped me with editing my resume and personal statement and I appreciate her work a lot. She is very responsible. She had conference call with me for several times in order to fully know my needs. She also gave me her suggestions and ideas regarding my word and that was very helpful!
Stephanie did an excellent job proofreading my script. Her understanding of grammar and syntax is impressive, and she has the eyes of a first-rate editor.
I sent Jillian five of my college application essays for the various schools I am applying to. She edited all of them and e-mailed them back within two days. She fully proofread them for grammar mistakes and also helped me brainstorm some more creative ways to approach some of the questions. I feel much less stressed about my applications after working with her. I was a little leery to hire Jillian because she is so new to Thumbtack, but decided to take a chance on Red Pen Wench and I'm so glad that I did. She was great to work with and I will definitely be telling my friends to use her services too.
Great job! She proofread a script and found every mistake. She even added a couple of suggestions to spice up the script. I willdefinitely use her again.
Great to work with, she helped me with all of my book. Her proofreading is beyond any professional I have ever seen.
