I’m a professional freelancer with nearly a decade’s experience with editing and web coding (HTML and CSS), and I have openings in my client list. I’m even familiar with ChoiceScript, because I’m writing my own game.
Need you story itself edited or proofread? I’m expert at recognizing when a word’s “proper” spelling depends on your dictionary and double-checking to make sure it matches. I read grammar handbooks for fun, and I know the difference between things like the homophones discreet & discrete).
I offer the following services. (I realize the script means the number of words in your word processor is higher than the number in your actual story, but the multi-file setup of a game makes up for that.)
Proofreading (checking for accidents, typos):
— $3 per 1k words
Light Line Editing (checking for accidents, typos, and making sure your text says what you intended it to)
— $4 per 1k words
Moderate Line Editing (helping you with errors and meaning, as well as some things you didn’t realize were rules (like commas needing to go after most introductory clauses, or the peeked/peaked/piqued distinction)
— $7 per 1k words
Heavy Line Editing (essentially the moderate line editing on steroids, where there are a lot of things you didn’t realize were rules)
— $11 per 1k words
Everything and the Kitchen Sink
— price varies depending on how you’re defining “everything”
(Note: More explanation of the various types of editing can be found on my website.)
All my edits include a Q&A pass, for you to respond to my edits or to ask why I did something.
Edits can be performed EITHER in a word processor or in a text editor.
If you want me to use a text editor, I’ll provide a tutorial on how to use Microsoft Word’s “Compare Two Documents” tool, which you can use if you want to see the specific changes I’ve made.
If you want me to use Microsoft Word, I will use Track Changes and, if you send me your files once you’re done clearing out all changes, I’ll convert the files back to text format for you, as part of the service.
Need help with HTML or CSS, for your game or your website? I’ve been using HTML and CSS for nearly a decade, coding my website by hand. Every so often, I recode my website from the ground up. I’ve even converted one short story of mine into a web app.
I can help with game code or with websites. (I can even take a PDF and, given the text and images, build a website to match as close as possible.)
My rate depends entirely on what you need.
