Hello everyone,

 

I am willing to help within this writing community! I would like I want you to know that I am not a professional writer by any means, though trying to become one,. However, I would like to help anyone if I can! I am very meticulous in the work that I do and I absolutely love to proofread and edit! I believe  I can complete other writing tasks successfully. I have posted a couple of writing samples on here though a while back. I would really appreciate any experience that I can gain here! 

 

Thank you,

 

Brittany

I’d love your help on an upcoming project. It will probably be a couple months, but I will keep you posted as I get closer to the end. Thanks so much for the generous offer.

As someone with dyslexia, I greatly appreciate everyone that helps with my spelling and grammar. 🙂 Are you working on getting you experience up, so you have referrals, or for another reason? (Ok, I'm a bit nosy)

There's always a ton of stuff in the critique section! :)

The reason I posted on here is because I am looking for experience more for helping others on a more one on one basis. If I do look for referrals Alley, it will be far into the future. Perhaps gaining enough experience to put on my resume if an paid editing assistant opportunity comes my way (where I live), or something else in a related fields.

Hi @CelticLady

 

Thank you for your offer of help.

 

Thinking about this I would like to take you up on your offer.  As someone who is dyslexic & visually impaired, with the best will in the world and even using a grammar tool, my work can still be full of holes. As anyone on this site who has critiqued my work can tell you.  I tend to get the last draft copy edited by a guy I know who does a brilliant job but I would like to ask if you would be willing to proof-read work in progress when it is at a stage ready to be critiqued here pleae?  I could supply the text in sections as I complete them, which may be better than sending the whole MS through. This I know would be appreciated by my beta readers and make it easier for them to focus on plot/structure and characters.   Would this be an option?

Thanks
