When it comes to editing, there are a variety of stages that a document experiences. I focus on the finishing touches of the document, meaning I won’t be there for the planning or drafting, but I love to help with everything from revision to proofreading.
I organize my services according to the following progression.
Stage One: Read
While it may seem obvious, the first step in any revision process is reading the work from beginning to end before making any changes, in order to decide where the writing needs the most attention. I provide this service to my clients free of charge.
When editing a document, I work best with some context. Include in your email what the project/assignment is, what kind of editing service you require, and when you need it completed.
Not sure what you need? Don’t sweat it, just mention that in your email, and we’ll take care of it in step two. ⬇️
Stage Two: Discuss
After reading through your document, we can talk about what you’d like for services, as well as what I think is needed. We’ll agree on an approach, set a date to have your project finished, and I’ll send it back with 3-5 pages edited, also free, to give you an idea of what you’ll be getting from me. If you aren’t satisfied, you can refuse my services and you won’t lose any money over it.
If you’d like to go continue, I’ll quote you a fee. I don’t list package prices ahead of time because every project is unique. My fee is based primarily on the amount of time I believe the project will take me to complete satisfactorily.
After this stage, your work is over!
Stage Three: Edit!
Once we’re on the same page, I’ll provide the services you require and have your document returned to you by the date agreed upon.
After you receive your completed document, I encourage you to write a review of my services on my Facebook business page.
