Editorial Portfolio

I have a love of the English language—from the commas and semicolons to the subject-verb agreements. Proper spelling, punctuation, syntax, and sentence structure all come second nature to me, giving me that nerdy edge I felt was a curse when I was young. As an adult, I embrace the nerd within. With line and copy editing as my specialty, my focused attention to detail is exceptional, as well as my dedication and follow through on projects. As I approach each new project, my philosophy is to maintain author authenticity.

What I look for:

- Typographical Errors
- Grammatical Mistakes
- Run-on Sentences
- Incorrect Punctuation
- Subject-Verb Disagreements
- Sentence Fragments and Lengths
- Spelling Errors
- Capitalization Misuse
- Verb Tense Shift
- Dangling and Misplaced Modifiers
- Common Errors in Word Usage
- Pronouns - Antecendent Agreement
- Pronouns with Essential and Nonessential Clauses
- Structure and Theme
- Organization
- Syntax

 

Whether it is a fiction book or a small-business website, it doesn't take much to make a piece of writing interesting to me. My tastes are eclectic and my mind is sharp.
