I am looking to build my proofreading portfolio so am offering my services FOR FREE. If you have any stories you’ve written that you’d like me to look at, then comment on this post. I don’t do any major edits and only accept files in the form of Word Documents where I will do ‘track changes.’
By the age of 15, I was published in three anthologies and I’ve also studied Creative Writing at Bath Spa university for three years. I graduated just under a year ago.
Just seen this and it is a really handy checklist to have!
So I am in the process of editing MY FIRST EVER BOOK! It is a supernatural thriller aimed at young adult readers. There are vampires werewolves and…. well lets not spoil the rest!
I thought I would spoil you all with the beginning of my story:
‘I sit on the balcony, staring into the night sky, watching the stars flicker and shine. My legs dangle off the side through the cold, metal bars and a cool breeze whistles through my ears. It reminds me of all of the midnight walks me and Dahlia used to have when we were in our early teenage years. We would stop off in the middle of the woods and dance around, with the wind blowing through our thin, white dresses. Fireflies would glide around us, lighting up the dark shadows cast down from the tall trees, which were closely huddled together like a pack of wolves, under the big, circular moon.’
