I speak at CEO and leadership training events and have developed a tool (MINDPOWER ToolBox) to help individuals and organizations looking for a competitive edge. This tool makes it easy for people to re-wire their brains with the 12 essential mindsets for happiness and success (Optimism, Resilience, Courage, Mindfulness, Purpose, Gratitude, etc.) in five minutes a day - while they relax with their morning coffee.
I am looking for a proofreader. I have 12 Word documents that are each 7 pages of text, except for one that is 11 pages. The text has already been inserted into an InDesign file for 12 mini-notebooks (4" x 5" with 31 pages, printed both sides) that will be sold as a set at my workshops. I cut and pasted the text into a word doc to make it easier to proofread and organized it by page, so I can quickly make the changes in the InDesign file once it is edited. I will include a PDF of each notebook artwork, so you (the editor) can see how the text fits into the artwork.
Five are done and ready to edit. I will be completing the others this week. I am already 2 weeks behind getting it to the printer, so I need an editor that has time to edit these docs this week. My final deadline is Monday, August 19th, so I may have to edit the final one or two myself if I don't finish them until Sunday.
Since I have to fit the text on each 2-page spread, I have had to do a lot of tightening up. The grammar may not always be ideal, so I am not looking for perfection. I am looking for spelling, missing or extra words, or anything big that a reader would see and say, "Oh my god, how did they miss that?" The one thing I know I need help with is the dots and spacing used for quotes where you cut out sections. Are there spaces between the dots and the words and is it four dots if the space between includes the end of a sentence?
I have attached a 7-page doc (Gratitude) and the one 11-pg doc (optimism) plus the two art files that they are associated with. Let me know if you have time to do this project and how much you would charge for each 7-page document.
