I’m Karyn almendarez
Life is packed with treasures…I write about them and help others tell their stories. I am an author, blogger, proofreader, podcaster, and cat lover!
WHAT IS PROOFREADING?
Proofreading IS the final look at a project rather than the first or even second pair of eyes. Your content should have been edited, rewritten, and ready to go.
I double-check to make sure no embarrassing
punctuation, grammatical, and/or spelling errors slip through.
WHAT IT IS NOT
Proofreading is the last stage in the game before a piece of content goes live. I am looking for items that have been missed in previous editorial passes.
This is NOT rewriting or editing where suggesting different words or rewriting sentences improves the content.
“Proofreading is so important because it provides that crucial second eye that is needed to ensure that your writing is up to standard!”
“No matter how many times you check your work, you will somehow still miss out on certain errors that you have unwittingly made. Proofreading is so important because it provides that crucial second eye that is needed to ensure that your writing is up to standard! I definitely recommend Karyn’s services for any proofreading needs that you have! She is sharp and can identify errors that you may have missed. Plus, Karyn is very friendly, calm, and all-around a very nice person to interact with!”
From entering every Spelling Bee in school, co-editing her high school newspaper, teaching Language Arts and moderating school spelling bees, authoring and self-publishing two books, and editing/proofreading nonfiction and fiction books and web copy for others, you can tell I love to proofread!
As a wife, mother, grandmother, retired educator, author, podcaster, and proofreader, I want to share my passion and talents for helping others to present their BEST work (books, blogs, or website copy) to the world.
No matter how many times you read over your work or how many professionals edit or format your copy, you will still miss certain errors that you have unwittingly made. Proofreading is VITAL because it provides that crucial last step needed to ensure that your writing is readable, professional, and error-free!
I would love to visit with you about your needs and goals for your writing.
