Still Editing

I learned that Editing is not the same as Proofreading and that Proofreading should happen only after Editing.

Editing is moving stuff around and adding stuff to make the story stronger and increased emphasis where you want it. That takes me sitting down for longish periods of time to get into the story.

Proofreading is just checking spelling, grammar, word usage and continuity. That's easy and can be done in as little as 30 second chunks.

Gotta get to it.

Hello,

My name is Robert, I work for a non-profit called Hire A Hero www.hireahero.com. Hire A Hero is a national not for profit program It is our mission to make a positive difference in the lives of those who have served our country by helping them network and find great jobs with military friendly employers.

The people who are returning from our Global War on Terror are not finding appropriate civilian employment. Nationally, veterans 20 to 24 years old, have a much higher unemployment rate than non-veterans of the same age group. In August of 2005, veterans had an unemployment rate of 15.6% compared to their non-veteran counterparts who had an unemployment rate of 8.7%. US Dept. of Labor Release

We are asking for your help to inform service men and women about our FREE program. Would you be interested in placing a Hire A Hero link on your website or perhaps writing an entry on your blog about this fantastic program? I have included a graphic if you choose to place our link.

Thank you for your support,

Robert Williams
