As a writer, I totally understand the apprehension of having your work edited. You've spent hours and hours working on your article, story, or book - it's your baby! Why do I want someone to come tear apart my work, filling my carefully constructed manuscript with strikethroughs and red ink?
Editing helps bring out the best in your writing. As an editor, I'm working with you, not against you, to make your writing the best it can be. Proofreading helps correct those embarrassing typos and grammar mistakes, and copyediting helps make every word count.
