Furry Editor & Proof-Reader
« on: November 30, 2018, 08:33:38 am »
First post in this section!

So, I do proof-reading and editing as a job (one of), self-employed. If anyone wants a document looking over, I am happy to do so  :) Generally anything < 10k I can do between and around my other assignments, while anything > 10k depends on the wordcount and my current workload. I'm happy to do this unpaid for furry-related/focused works, whereas if we get into business, for publishing or academic territory, then there's a pricetag due to... it being my job.

I may take you up on this. What kind of editing are you taking about? (Content, copyediting, etc). There's a few things I'd like to improve before I abuse my beta readers any more than I do now. (Poor Jade)

I do content and structural copy-editing alike, and proof-reading. I've done academic and non-academic work alike.

Awww! Dang it! I knew I would get replaced.  ;)

And I was so getting used to being abused. It hurt so good. Naa... you never abused me.  It was fun, and consensual.

Just remember Varg, your first mass-market book , I get the first official copy, signed by you.
 :D

But seriously, a pro would have more insight than I, and would probably be faster. And more accurate, and just plain better.

I would still like to be a beta-reader ya' know, so don't forget me.... please... I need your stories Varg.  They are all I have  , please I beg of you kind sir, do not let me live without your stories!  *choking down the tears of rejection*
*kidding*

Have fun Cateline! Varg has some good ones.

And by "Good Ones" I meant writing! You are a good writer Varg!

No, I did not mean you have some good typo's!  ;)

Email is the easiest; I can send you it via PM?  :)

That works fine. Do you have a format preference (.rtf, .scriv, .docx, .otd, .pages, etc)?
