For the longest time I have been trying to improve my writing, and I think I have… slightly. Two years, thousands of words and lots of topics, most of them being about movies because I love them as an artistic medium despite the pain it has inflicted upon me. But I know that I can’t do this alone. I haven’t asked anyone outright to be my editor because one, I am lazy, and two, I am unsure of how to properly compensate someone for working alongside me.
Until now! So, true to this post’s name, I have an editor now. They go by the name of Shae, and if you notice an uncharacteristic amount of polish in my writing, they are the reason why. I don’t know if it’s good manners to credit one’s editor or not, but, given that Shae is also a freelancer who likes to look over the precious babies of other creative types and then scold them into something approaching the idea of human perfection, I think it is proper in this case.
So, say hello to Shae! They will be looking over my work, and I promise that I am compensating them. At least, I’m doing so in the way that they like. Totally not exploitative. Really.
