Three years ago I was a fledgling proofreader; I’d just finished my initial training and I was ready to take on my first projects. I was nervous and shy and full of self-doubt. The whole experience was intensely difficult.
Fast forward to July 2018 and I am launching Black Cat Editorial Services. I’m nervous, but not quite as shy, and the self-doubt is not so overwhelming. I have behind me the knowledge and experience gained from more than 60 projects, of three years of working as a freelance editorial professional. Black Cat Editorial Services is a natural progression; I have the skill and confidence to offer more to my clients than I could three years ago.
So, it’s goodbye to the old website (proofreaderhannah.com) and hello to the new one (blackcatedit.com). And it’s hello to offering copy-editing, manuscript critique, and style sheet creation services.
Thank you to everyone who has helped me to reach this point: family, friends, clients and colleagues. I couldn’t have done it without you.
