A Fresh set of Eyes and Another's Perspective It is nearly impossible to proofread our own writing, no matter how astute of a reader or writer we are. We know what we meant to write and so when we read back over it, we automatically read what we know we meant to say.
Editing & Proofreading My editing services include the standard punctuation and grammatical correctness, of course. I take extra care not to change the style of the author's expression but rather support the person to express from a place of honouring what they have to share. As an editor, I read it from the perspective of the reader. Does it make sense? Can the reader follow what the author is saying?
However, I also edit energetically, accommodating each person's individual expression making it accessible for all. By reading energetically, I mean being guided by questions such as 'Is this the right place for this information?' 'Has there been enough set up for the reader to understand what is being said?' 'Has the author digressed into an area that isn't relevant or necessary to making the point?' 'Does the content advance the story?' 'Does the content advance the reader?'
Assessments If you are writing a book, a manuscript, screenplay or a blog and don't know if you are on track or not, I have experience in offering support with
an overview reading, identifying holes in the storyline and suggestions of how to bridge the gaps or create continuity
an assessment of the readability
a more in-depth proofreading, making suggestions for clarifying concepts
suggestions for edits that provide for a clean and clear manuscript
My purpose, as an editor, is to be truth-full in my assessment while being supportive of the writer. My service is to co-create content that supports the evolution of all of humanity.
Articles, Blogs and / or Newsletters Whether you are writing articles for your own blog site, putting out your own newsletter or writing for an online publication, I can offer a quick proofreading service to pick up typos and those frequently misspelled words. However, if you need more in-depth support I can also offer editing services, making useful suggestions without changing your voice.
Websites If you are creating a new website or perhaps re-imprinting an existing website, I can support you by proofing the content that you supply.
Many websites are written from a technical point of view and are not user friendly. I am able to make the content more inviting, without losing the technical information that you need to convey so that your website is easier to navigate for the person who needs to access your services or products.
