What do you love about your job?

I love being a writer, an editor and a tutor because in today's world of technology, English grammar,spelling, and sentence structure have deteriorated. I enjoy editing writers' works because many times I end up learning about a new topic or exploring a new world while helping my client express him or herself better. By tutoring students who care enough to seek help, I am helping build lifelong learners who want to enjoy learning. Writing helps me reach large audiences who want to learn more about topics I am an expert in. Most importantly, I love hearing my clients tell me I have made a difference in their lives.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

I was inspired to start my own business because I love helping others and enjoy the flexibility being my own boss offers. I started out looking for only editing clients and expanded to include writing and tutoring. I felt these services fit well together and allowed me to maximize use of my skills. By being my own boss, I can be selective of how I spend my time. I also enjoy being able to work from any location.

“Need Editing Service for a Fictional Book”

Details
I have a 50,000 word fiction book that at this time I need proofed and edited. Some of the vernacular is rural and some is plain English. The rural portion probably just needs to be checked for consistency. The plain English is another story. I can write fiction but sometimes sentence structure is another matter. Can you give me a ballpark idea of the cost? There will eventually be 5 or 6 books in this series that will need to be proofed and edited. I have the next book already in the pipeline at this time. It should be done in a few weeks. After that they will be written on a schedule of every 2 to 3 months until the series is complete. I would prefer to use the same person to edit each book. I feel that once I establish a relationship with an editor and they become familiar with my writing style, it will prove to be a lot more productive. After I see what you can do and If we can reach an agreement on a reasonable cost, perhaps we could enter into a long term association. Thank you.
