So uh, hey. I need to make a whole lot of money very quickly! I don’t want to bore everyone with details and it’s not dire for enough that I’m looking for donations, but let’s just say that my bank lost a $450 (that qualifies as a whole lot of money for me) deposit of mine two weeks ago and that is only scratching the surface of my recent troubles. I get a steady income from social assistance/disability, however I need a little extra cash for the next few months, so I need to do a little extra work. I can’t really do art commissions, but I CAN do reasonably priced freelance Editing in exchange for $$$$$.
I am an English minor, a pro-rate published writer and a graduate of Clarion West’s six week short story workshop, which was basically an editing boot-camp helmed by some of the most successful writers and editors in the biz. I’ve been paid for editing work before, although never professionally.
$10 per thousand words + $5 an hour.
It usually takes me no longer than two hours to parse a thousand words for editing purposes unless your text is unusually dense.
Example: 3,500 word story will cost $35 base + $20 for the four hours it takes
For anything over 10,000 words, my hourly rate will go up (negotiable).
WHAT I AM WILLING TO EDIT
Original fiction, for any purposes. No fanfic. I won’t charge money for beta services. I may also be willing to edit academic work, but only if it’s in a subject I went to school for (history, english and cultural studies) and only if you’re not expecting me to come up with your essay topic for you.
WHAT TO EXPECT
No grammar/punctuation line editing unless something is really glaring. What I do is stylistic and structural editing. I will help you clean up your prose, increase your clarity and hone your style. I will also suggest fixes to structural problems, ask questions designed to help you view the text from new perspectives and do a close reading of your themes and characters. The last paid editing job I did was for a 40,000 word novella and I turned in well over 10k in crit, all of which was well received.
Also! I work fast. I’m disabled and I don’t work a traditional job so I have a lot of down-time. If you hire me on an editing job under 10k words, I’ll start working on it the same day I receive your document.
PLEASE signal boost this if you know ANYONE who needs an editor. I really need the work (and I do enjoy doing it!)

PS: I personally prefer to finish a job before I’m paid for it (for my own sanity), so payment up front is absolutely not expected!
Thank you so much to everyone who passed this around the first time! I got a few jobs out of it and it helped immeasurably. Reblogging again because I could always use more work in Sept.!
When my husband [Carl Sagan] died, because he was so famous and known for not being a believer, many people would come up to me — it still sometimes happens — and ask me if Carl changed at the end and converted to a belief in an afterlife. They also frequently ask me if I think I will see him again.
Carl faced his death with unflagging courage and never sought refuge in illusions. The tragedy was that we knew we would never see each other again. I don’t ever expect to be reunited with Carl. But, the great thing is that when we were together, for nearly twenty years, we lived with a vivid appreciation of how brief and precious life is. We never trivialized the meaning of death by pretending it was anything other than a final parting. Every single moment that we were alive and we were together was miraculous — not miraculous in the sense of inexplicable or supernatural. We knew we were beneficiaries of chance… That pure chance could be so generous and so kind… That we could find each other, as Carl wrote so beautifully in Cosmos, you know, in the vastness of space and the immensity of time… That we could be together for twenty years. That is something which sustains me and it’s much more meaningful.
The way he treated me and the way I treated him, the way we took care of each other and our family, while he lived. That is so much more important than the idea I will see him someday. I don’t think I’ll ever see Carl again. But I saw him. We saw each other. We found each other in the cosmos, and that was wonderful.
