NAIWE writing prompt: What looks to be your big project of the week?
Well, I’m glad you asked, because I’ve actually got two big projects this week.
One is a copyedit of a scientific grant proposal. Grant proposals are top secret, so I will say no more about this one other than that its subject matter is very interesting.
The other is a copyedit and proofread of a company website. Last fall I proofread three consumer catalogs for this company and they were so happy with my work that they decided to have me do their website. Their website is beautiful but has a ton of pages, so the process is very time consuming. However, I am learning a lot about this company’s products. I am even starting to want to buy a few of them.
These two projects are keeping me very busy; in fact, the company website project has no hard deadline and will most likely occupy my time until June. But when you are a freelance editor, you live for times like these. Busyness is pure gold!
