|Information has value only if it's right, if people know about it and if they understand and remember what they know.
An editor adds and protects that value.
Editing. Research. Proofreading. Online Content Production. Editorial Consulting.
My career has followed three main themes so far: I covered high-tech from the early days of the Mac through the dot.com bust. During my "professional expat" phase, I deciphered France and the French for seven years. In 2009-2010, I used my powers for good: communications at a nonprofit.
Throughout, I've relied on four rules of thumb:
- Really understand and empathize with your reader.
- Stay curious about everything, everyone.
- Don't miss the deadline. Just don't.
- Check it again.
Fast. Accurate. Reliable. Careful, but creative. Detail-oriented, but with the big picture in view.
