In recent years it's also become a great comfort to have things to do that I can do from bed or chair when pain makes it difficult to be on my feet. And of course electronic transmission has been a huge boost to anyone dealing in the written word, including me.
So...I've decided to formalize my services a bit and at the same time earn a little pocket change by doing what I love. As you can see from the ad, I will proofread and edit (usually only a light edit) just about anything you have written. No, kids, I will not write a research paper for you, nor will I change yours substantially...but if your mom and dad okay it, I'll work with you on how to make it better! And you homeschool parents, if you'd like some help evaluating your child's writing and would like some suggestions on areas for improvement, I can do that on a one-time basis or quarterly, etc.
I'd prefer to work through email and attachments, but if you have an aversion to the keyboard and would rather work through the mail, that's okay too as long as you're not in a big hurry! Those of you who are lucky enough to live near the real Granny's House might want to work with me in person.
Word of mouth helps this kind of business more than anything, so feel free to spread the word. If I get swamped, which I don't really expect, I'll post a big STOP sign on the blog.
The email link on the ad itself is the one to use for An Elegant Proof. The one on the right sidebar is reserved for all other purposes...
And that's all I have to say about that.
EXCEPT: If you're one of the folks that I've already promised a free proofing job before I decided to go for the big bucks LOL...don't panic. You're
