“The most valuable of all talents is that of never using two words when one will do. – Thomas Jefferson”
Favorite referencing style
I don't have a particular favorite style. I aim to be adaptable to what is needed.
Why I became an editor
Reading and writing is my passion because it is through the written word that worlds are created and knowledge is passed on. I think of it as a privilege to be able aid those creating these worlds and passing on their knowledge, and to do so with clarity.
Background and experience
I previously worked, both as an employee and as a freelancer, as a desktop publisher and editor for four years.
For the past 14 years, I have been a full-time mum. During the years that my children have been at school, I have had the honour of homeschooling them both at different times, and so I have enjoyed the role of teacher. As a result, both my "students" have received awards and high results in their writing.
Why I love proofreading and editing
Editing and proofreading is the ideal job for me since I enjoy delving into many different subjects. I am widely read on topics such as social history, psychology, and many different branches of science.
I find great pleasure in learning new things, and I get to do this during the process of proofreading and editing someone's work.
