Well, that was stupid. While trying to set up my specialised profile, I managed to delete the text from my general profile. Then I thought maybe it was a blessing in disguise as it was looking terribly tired.

 

Anyway, I've rewritten it and was wondering if anyone was bored and fancied taking a quick peek. I'd really appreciate it if you could point out any errors or offer any sort of feedback, really. I know this is usually a newbie question but didn't think it would do any harm to ask. Thanks in advance, lovely peeps.

That's fair - except your profile is private so I can't access it :-(

Looks great to me! My only (minor) criticism is that perhaps it's a bit too long? But I especially like the line "I thrive on doing large projects that start in a state of confusion and need serious whipping into shape" - you might even consider making that the first line.

Thanks! Yes, you're probably right. That line needs moving up.

 

Not *too* worried about the length as I tend to work with long-winded people, but I'll sleep on it and tomorrow I'll tighten it a bit.

Kim, I agree with Christine about repositioning that line.  It is too good to be buried.  You might want to delete the very last line; a bit cutesy which is neither your style or needed.

 

On your editing profile, would it make sense to briefly explain the various forms of editing?  Or do you prefer to keep development editing under writer profile?

Somewhat OT:

 

I am still holding off on specialized profiles. I thought of using them to enumerate types of editing (and their costs), but I couldn't conceive how to make that work. I have found the new beta "popular," i.e. typical, projects list to be better suited to my needs for that. I can put out there that different kinds of editing have different costs, without getting into the details of the taxonomy.

Michael, you might have inspired me to take a second look at that 'feature'.  Admittedly, I have been shying away from it because almost all the jobs I do are fairly convoluted when it comes to fitting them into pigeon holes.

I'm trying to aim for dovecotes rather than pigeon holes. You still get pigeons in them, but they sound so much nicer.
