    Hi everybody!

    I am hoping to become a professional editor, and was wondering whether anyone had a manuscript they wanted beta read/edited for them. I haven’t had a ton of experience, but I just wanted to offer my services!

    Thanks everybody!

      Can I snag a spot for later?? I’m working on two-ish stories right now that I will probably want proof read sometime this year…

      BTW I love your signature!! COOKIES, MUSIC AND I FOUND ANOTHER ENTJ (meaning I found another person with that type, I’m not one myself)!!!!!

      Oh boy, yes. If you don’t mind, I will add you to my list of people I want to proof read my book when it’s ready. 😉

      Honestly, I would ABSOLUTELY love that! Like Erica, I wouldn’t have it ready immediately but would love to snag a spot for later, if that’s possible?

      I would love to take you up on that. I just have to figure out what would be the best project to send to you.

      I have a project that I haven’t touched in quite a while… one that was my big start. I did NaNo in 2016, and came out with a novella that needs work (quite a bit). How would you like to take it on? It’s barely over 41000 words.

      Also… You’re an ENTJ, as am I. And I’m curious to know how that operation works in a guy compared to a girl… because I’m certain there’s difference. 🙂

      I would LOVE to give your story a read! I did NaNoWriMo in 2018, but I didn’t get very far. I hadn’t thought the story through very far, so after about 15,000 words it was feeling forced LOL

      and, as an ENTJ, and the only other one I’ve ever met, I also would be interested to see how we are similar. My two closest friends are INTJ and ENTP, I think, and we are definitely a motley crew!

      Also! For the ENTJ part, here’s something you might enjoy reading, and see how much of it you relate with: https://www.typeinmind.com/teni/

      After you read it, it should be easier for us to compare.

      Also! Yes… NaNo get’s forced… but I pansted my whole way through this one. And it’s important to remember that the reason we write so fast in such short amount of time is because we’re “Throwing up now, to clean up later.”

      But still, 15000 words is a good chunk!

      why thanks! NaNo was definitely a growing thing for my writer’s mind, and I’ll definitely try to jump back on board with in this year!

      I read that article, and that’s basically me. the only thing different is that it said at one point that ENTJs tend to be more risk takers than those that play by the book, and while its partially true of me (I’m not opposed to taking calculated risks), I do like to follow rules and stay within proper guidelines. LOL

      Okay! Cool! I too found the article super accurate. Like so accurate it made me really happy to know someone understood me.

      As for the following guidelines… I like them. But I don’t like being held by them, and I do enjoy a certain risk taking. the male part of me might prefer risk taking more than the female you… which might be a major difference.
