Before I move on to post chapter 19, this post must come first.
With the sad disappearance of weakwithwords, I am in need of a new editor to join me and Vincent. There is only one requirement I wish for that person, and it is to be a grammer nazi. While stuff makes complete sense to me, I am Australian and it is often mentioned between my friends that I speak “Lazy English”.
When selecting an editor, I would like to know how you can:
Grammer Nazi An individual who is highly skilled and contains critical judgement in all aspects of the English language. Often known to feel insulted when faced with improper grammar. Level: 172 Abilities: - Fix grammatical errors. Placing comma's and full stops in the correct places. Breaking some sentences into two where need be. - Pick up when I have accidentally used past tense instead of present tense and vice versa. - Mark sentences that could do with rewording/restructuring (your suggestions will also be welcome) Also, anyone who can write a good blurb for the volumes will have an advantage!!! ^.^
There are lots of things that are of benefit to my writing but these are the main ones. Also, I will accept anyone under level 172 who has adequate stats. ^.^
I don’t expect you to do the hard work for nothing. And it can be hard, I often doze off while writting and parts of my rough draft can become gibberish. I will offer you a few small incentives.
I will give you the pdf’s of all my volumes already released and to be released as they are compiled. And you get your commendation at the top of each chapter along with being able to leave any header notes as well. Heck, you can even say rude things! I will just censor you. ^.^
I also offer 15% of royalties from any volumes of EO that you edit the entirety of. But do not just do this for money. As royalties for the books do not come until 2 months after the end of month total is calculated, so you wouldn’t be getting paid for a while at the start. Payments will be made through paypal as well, unless you are in Australia and wish for a bank transfer.
Unfortunately, I can’t offer you more as I rely on the payments myself.
I want someone that would enjoy working with me and does in fact enjoy the story. I am rather easy to work with and I give consideration to all suggestions, unless they affect the story as a whole. I am recruiting an editor and not another thought machine.
The test will be a piece of text (approximitely 20% – 1600 words) from one of the chapters in volume 1. Comment below or email me and I will create a google doc to share with you! I will need your email though.
You can comment below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Up to you!
Thank you for your time. ^.^
