Editing to Make Your Vision a Reality

I enjoy reading for pleasure and spend the majority of my free time doing so. I once heard someone say that you should think of what you would do with your time if you won a million dollars. The point of the exercise was to determine what activity one truly loved and enjoyed and to pursue it as one's career. For me, I would choose reading.

I am familiar with MLA, APA, and Chicago Manual of Style guidelines, and am familiar with UK (Oxford) English spellings, grammar, and conv
