Why do I need an editor?
Even editors need editors!
The reason being, we all become over-familiar with the words we've written. How many times have you sent off an email only to find an error or two when you reread it later?
It's because you're too close to your work. A fresh editorial eye will catch those embarrassing and avoidable errors.
When I decided to focus on proofreading and copy editing full-time, I took an accredited course to make sure my skills were up to date. The funny thing was, I found errors in the course material.
This proves an important point: we all need a fresh set of editorial eyes – and that's what I'm here for.
