"The beautiful part of writing is that you don't have to get it right the first time, unlike, say, a brain surgeon." ~Robert Cormier

"The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place." ~George Bernard Shaw

When you read what you've written, you don't see what you've written. You see what you think you've written. They're not always the same.

You need someone to look at what you've written before your reader sees it.

Mistakes make you look unprofessional and are downright embarrassing, and the BBC reports that online mistakes cost millions in lost sales.

Lack of clarity is even worse.

If your writing is sloppy, people might expect your work to be sloppy. Like these guys.

I ensure that nothing gets between your reader and your message.

Hiring a proofreader will always cost less than reprinting your documents or having your prospect point out your mistakes. Or lost sales. Not to mention lowering your stress levels.

I'll proofread and edit your document for 3 cents per word.

Price shouldn't be the first thing you look for, but I know you'll ask about it at some point, so there it is.

What do you get for that? Credibility. Perfection. Peace of mind.

Proofreading is not an expense. It is an investment.

Some proofreaders will promise you two or three edits. I call them slackers. I reread your document as many times as it takes to make it perfect.

Do what you're best at, what you want to do, what you went into business for. I'll edit and proofread your documents, which you probably hate doing, because that's what I do best, and I'm weird enough to like it.

I've been Carl Dickson's editor for 10 years, and he phrases that a little differently. He says I keep him from looking stupid.

When you write, that’s what you want. With Michael Edits, that’s what you get.

Great writing is like a window pane. Let Michael Edits be your Windex.
