    Hello lovelies~ Welcome to my shop!
    Some of you may know, but if you don't, I'm an editor for The Pulp Zine.
    I was also a copy editor for my high school newspaper, and I've edited books for a few Indie authors.
    If there's something you would like a layout for please feel free to visit my graphic shop, here.

    one. Only one request may be open per person at a time. Once I have finished, you may request again.
    two. I will edit full stories or single chapters. If you have a full story you need beta'd then please PM me first to discuss.
    three. Any rating and any type of work goes, but I do not accept incest or m-preg.
    four. Pre-existing work is acceptable, work-in-progress will need to be emailed or linked to a Google document
    five. Please be clear about the type of edit you want: spelling, grammar, punctuation type or a full critique of your work? Let me know your needs.
    six. Credit must be given* If you do not credit me, I will approach you once. After that you will be blacklisted from requesting.
    seven. Once your request is filled, please edit your post to say "completed" or to strike it through.

    *Credit Coding*
    Copy and paste one of these codes into your story summary or author's note accordingly.
    Replace the word "story" with "chapter," "article," etc. accordingly.

    ‣ Spotting any spelling and punctuation errors, as well as grammatical errors
    ‣ Spotting lack of variation in sentence structure word use - i.e. paragraphs that start with "the" or dialogue frequently
    ‣ Further, with word use I notice when words are used repetitively in a way that might be noticeable and can suggest alternative words
    ‣ Am able to help formulate an appealing summary
    ‣ I usually pick up on holes (contradictions, inconsistencies) in your story or character development - i.e. one chapter says MC is doing X but the next says they did Y
    ‣ Pick up on any formatting issues - i.e. inconsistency in italicized/bold/underlined things like thought patterns and missing paragraph breaks
    ‣ I can also help with development for your characters or story in general

    ‣ A request form is filled out and left here
    ‣ Your information will be placed in the waiting room and I will PM you to confirm your request or get a copy of an un-posted piece
    ‣ You will be asked before and after the piece is edited if you have any questions or concerns
    ‣ The piece will be edited and you will receive the edited copy from me
    ‣ If a second look is requested I will begin that and can either OK it or send back a second edit if so wished
    ‣ The above can be repeated as many times as you'd like and once everything is done and you've seen through rules #6 and #7, I'll take you off the waiting room list
