Why use an editor?

The use of an editor ensures your work is functional and fit for its intended purpose and audience. Errors in grammar, punctuation, spelling and appropriate language use can undermine your credibility and confuse your readers so that your intended communication is lost or misunderstood.

Editors are also invaluable when it comes to writer blindness. This form of blindness is a major threat to your integrity. It occurs when you become immersed in writing something and can no longer see errors and problems. This affects every writer, regardless of education and experience. Your brain becomes so familiar with your material that as you read it automatically corrects any errors.

Unfortunately, for writers attempting to edit and proofread their own work, the brain sees what it expects to see, not what is actually there.

Editors provide a fresh set of objective eyes as they have not been immersed in creating your work. This is vital to detecting errors and omissions; it also ensures that language conventions are complied with and readership and publication goals are achieved.

I can help you to get your message across in language that is clear, concise, well expressed and consistent while retaining your own unique voice.
