I am a novelist, and I need someone to type as I dictate novels over the phone.
Must be fluent in English and have excellent spelling, grammar, and typing speed (60+ words per minute preferred).
Must have Microsoft Word and a phone, either mobile or land line. I suppose we could try Skype phone calls as well (no video).
The first novels I dictate to you will be romances. Other genres will follow over time.
You must be okay with hearing and typing profanity and sexually suggestive dialogue and banter. (Don't worry, I will type out any love scenes myself.)
I'm looking for someone who is available Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays 10AM - 6PM Pacific Standard, and potentially for several hours on Saturdays and Sundays. If one applicant can't do both weekdays and weekends, I may hire different people for different days.
This is a short-term gig at first to see if this approach works for me. (I've never dictated a novel before, and I hate Dragon Naturally Speaking.) We'll try it for a week. If it works, then the project will become long-term (months or potentially years).
Also, hours will be somewhat flexible at first. We will arrange and agree on schedules beforehand. If I commit to using you 6 hours and then I use you for less because I choose to end the session early, I will still pay you for the full 6 hours. If YOU end the session early, you only get paid for the hours you've worked.
