Editing – A Helping Hand

Looking to get some of your work edited, or perhaps do a little editing yourself? If so, then check out Fiverr. Here you can find an editor for your article, manuscript, or even the first few pages of your manuscript. I would highly recommend getting someone to check out your work before submitting it anywhere. On Fiverr, you will find hundreds of editors with varying abilities.

On the other hand, if you’re wanting to spread your wings as an editor, you can market yourself. Just create your profile and write a brief description of your services. Both can be customized to fit both your schedule and your fees. Either way, Fiverr is a great opportunity for a helping hand.

Benefits of Diversity

If you’re like me, it’s easy to find the sort of book you love and to keep reading only that genre. However, if you want to be a great, imaginative writer, you might want to pick up some new books for your shelves.

It is through diverse readings that we learn not only how to write, but how to think and plot as well. For example, one could easily take away lessons on loyalty and friendship from the Harry Potter series, but another lesson entirely from the Game of Thrones, such as betrayal and brutality.

It is in the reading of diverse books that not only do you learn different writing styles to incorporate into your own style but themes to explore as well. It also aids in character development.

All in all, the benefits of diverse reading are crucial to the craft of writing, and perhaps the reason why so many writers continually repeat, “Read, read, read” when giving advice to aspiring writers.

“Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it,” Albus Dumbledore.
