I’ve decided to start free-lance editing again. One of the many things I did when the youngest of my five sons started school was a two year Diploma of Arts (Writing and Editing). My local TAFE didn’t offer a second year in Editing so I drove a few hours extra once a week to complete it. Good fun.
I still plan to write books but I’m not overwhelmed with creative ideas at the moment and I might just write a few short stories because, with most things, I’m impatient. Surprisingly though, I’m actually very patient when it comes to editing, simply because you have to be. The devil’s in the detail and all that. I hate to brag but I have an innate ability to spot a stray apostrophe, my particular bugbear.
At the moment I’m only taking on Australian clients, simply because I’d rather not deal with other countries’ tax requirements, but I might change my mind if demand from one or two countries is great enough.
This blog was started with the intention of sharing my experiences on self-publishing, and I’ll still do that. Hopefully I can also help some independent writers now with my editing service. Editing Indies
