Favorite referencing style
MLA is my favorite style because it was the system most used in my studies.
Why I became an editor
I was looking for a change in career when I learned about proofreading. It seemed like a perfect opportunity to explore an old dream of proofreading books, so I jumped right on it. Having studied history at university, I have always had a love for reading and learning. My history degree gave me an eye for detail and a desire to dig deeper into the subject at hand. I look forward to using these skills to help others with their writing.
Background and experience
I have worked at a variety of jobs, from participating in the beer brewing process to being a caretaker of fruit flies for the local university.
Why I love proofreading and editing
I enjoy the proofreading process because I get to learn about different subject areas and expand my knowledge while simultaneously helping writers to get their message across more clearly.
The Iron Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearne are my favorite books.
When I'm not proofreading, I'm usually playing video games or D&D or cooking.
When I first begin proofreading, I like to read it out loud first. If it sounds clunky out loud, it probably needs some tweaking.
