Desert Proofreader Thirsts for Perfection
« on: March 13, 2018, 06:37:51 PM »
Hi everyone, my name is Richard and I live in the Southern Calif desert. I'm an oldie bookworm who waited several weeks to receive a first generation Kindle. My guilty reading pleasure is delving into the eldritch niter-encrusted tombs of Lovecraft and related Mythos authors.

After every job kept making me the "unofficial proofreader", I decided to freelance and do it on my own!  For 20 years I used a microscope to root out diseases, now I use a red pen to find deadly errors before the reader does. When I'm not reading, I love to proofread archaic texts for Project Gutenberg. Fascinating old books and illustrations, but no Necronomicon!

I blog and have published a few articles about pets and travel online, but my creative short stories have to wait until after midnight.

Happy Writing,

Richard Trump

Welcome! I'm new here too. I'll keep you in mind. Personally, I feel that every word I'm typing is being proofread by you right now...  ;D

Don't worry about me. When I'm off the clock I don't pick on people's writing in forums. Now, if you have an error on your web page you'll get a message from me! ;D
