Editing/Reading for you
I get a lot of requests to read and/or edit blogs and pieces. Let me tell you a little secret about most writers:
We’re terrible editors. Yup! We’re darn good at putting words out there, but we’re not so great at pulling them back. E.B.

Self-edit your work by combing through for unnecessary words, you’d be surprised at how tight this will make your final piece.
That said, if you send me a piece, I’ll read it. I promise I’ll read it. I might not be able to get back to you with my thoughts, but I promise I’ll read it!
