I am looking for someone to proofread/edit my memoir, it's relatively short, about 35,000 words. It's a look back on my twenties and the lessons I've learned, the challenges I've faced, and the people I've met along the way. I think I have a humorous attitude and unique outlook on life that I really try to portray in my writing. I use sarcasm, wit, and one too many "bad words" to really add color that mimics my personality. I am looking for someone who is not only extremely professional and can help me with the technical aspects of this, but is also is able to fill in where I am lacking while still keeping my voice intact. Ideally, I would like to find someone who gets my sense of humor, who has experience in this genre, and someone who will help me make this the best it can possibly be. This is something I have worked extremely hard on and I am thrilled to share it, but before I do, I need your help!
