What It Is (posts below left; rate sheet, client list, other stuff below right)

My name is Bob Land. I am a full-time freelance editor and proofreader, and occasional indexer. This blog is my website.

You'll find my rate sheet and client list here, as well as musings on the life of a freelancer; editing, proofreading, and indexing concerns and issues; my ongoing battles with books and production; and the occasional personal revelation.

Feel free to contact me directly with additional questions: landondemand@gmail.com.

Thanks for visiting. Leave me a comment. Come back often.

Proofreading 101

Get a copy of Highlights for Children. Go to the page where you are comparing two pictures to find the 18 differences. Keep working at it until you find No. 19. You might be called in for overtime if you can find No. 20.

If you are a freelancer, go to "Goofus and Gallant." Study the character traits of both. This knowledge will come in handy one day.
