What I Expect you to do when editing:
• Fix Spelling errors or misplaced/repeated words (for example if I write “fried” instead of “friend.” I do not need to be updated on these sorts of errors.
• Remove unnecessary commas but leave them if they are a gray area in terms of usage.
• Add punctuation when necessary.
• Alert me to any major flow problems, but I don’t need help with the material or how I present it. Managing the flow of the article is your smallest priority and not always necessary.
So basically, grammar, spelling. A 300-600 word article should take less than 5 minutes to edit.
For the first few articles I'll want to approve and accept changes, but once we've got our relationship down, I'd prefer not to have to approve article changes. I need to hurry my turn around time and so this means spending time approving changings is a time waster for me. :)
I’d prefer not to have to alert you to articles, rather, I’d like for you to enable alerts on dropbox so that you'll be alerted when there is a new assignment. At first, we can have as much communication needed until we get it down.
I work all hours, and I know it's not reasonable to expect you to do so. What I am looking for is someone who is available for five minutes a few times a day so that I can send articles and have them back immediately.
