We used to edit postings for bad language or insults, but this takes too much time.
It is much easier for us to just stop validating messages from that poster, and that is what we will do.
Do not post pictures which are not yours without permission from the copyright holder.
It is the responsibility of each poster to make sure you have permission to use any photos you post.
If necessary I can also do the proofreading, but I also know of a number of excellent proofreaders and copyeditors that I've often worked with who may be willing to take on another author.
As a rule, another set of eyes during editing/proofreading passes is always good!
I have nothing against pure stroke stories, but don't want to expend my time editing a plotless stroke story.
Postings that are inappropriate, of an overly personal nature, or are deemed to be pure nonsense, will not be validated.Credentials: I used to write "How To's" for the working class to use laptops in their work.My background is in Hi-Voltage construction, with many hobbies and interests.Comments: I generally prefer doing developmental or story/"big picture" editing more than I do doing basic copyediting/proofreading for spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors.Of course I'll correct those things where I find them, but my preference is to focus my editing energy on your overall story, looking at its plot, flow, continuity, character development, pacing, readability, and other such issues.I have a knowledge of flying private planes / light aircraft, and an extensive knowledge of ambulances/EMS/emergency rooms/paramedicine in the US.Comments:prefer authors that know the difference between to, too and two; their and there; singular person and plural: in other words use good grammar.Please note that all comments in postings are the opinion of the author of the posting and that is not responsible for the opinions or evaluations posted on this forum.Further note that requests for valuation may elicit replies, but these are only the opinions of visitors, and the forum is not intended to be a venue for valuing objects. 3) If you feel a poster is ignoring these two basic rules, please write directly to the moderators via the Private Mail link below.I finished editing for an Author and I am free until he gives me more work. I am very good at finding wrong words, missing letters, weird sentences, etc. Just let me know your preferences and we will go from there! Credentials: I am an author with several stories on SOL and I have assisted to edit for several others.Feedback to my 1st Author: "Good writing that is very engaging, and your editor / proofreader seems to have done an excellent job." I finished my 1st e Book and am now uploading it. and I believe a lot of low scores I see are due to poor or no editing breaking the flow of your stories. I am retired and have assisted Dual_Writer with a list of characters for his Florida Friends and some of his earlier work. Prefers: As I come to the end of my year of 69, and reach my seventieth birthday today, April 14th, 2009, I have decided to cut back on my editing.
