“Make every word count.”
Favorite referencing style
APA style is my favorite referencing style because it's the one I'm most familiar with.
Why I became an editor
Ever since I can remember, I've been an avid reader. Lord of the Rings was the first time I became interested in the actual process of proofreading. Working with an author's words and preserving their voice was an interesting concept that I wanted to explore.
About a year ago, I started the Knowadays course, and I quickly realized that this was what I wanted to do as a career. Being able to help elevate someone's writing while doing something I love has been a dream come true.
Background and experience
I have done beta reading for indie authors.
Why I love proofreading and editing
I love the satisfaction of going through a piece of writing line by line and cleaning it up. Seeing the difference I can make is a great feeling.
A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin, Hyperion by Dan Simmons, The Hellbound Heart by Clive Barker, and Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien.
When I'm not proofreading, I'm usually taking care of my kids, reading, or playing video games.
Before I start proofreading, I always check for any accidental double spaces.
