Well, allowing for Melbourne’s fickle weather patterns, first thing on the list (after breakfast of course!) is walking the dog. This gives me a clear head to start the day.
Next is having a project to proofread. This can vary from a memoir, fiction or non-fiction book, website copy to a business document or a set of Tarot cards. Proofreading provides such a fulfilling part of my day but is also very labour intense. Short breaks are the key.
Then there’s forming connections with new clients, maintaining business relationships, social media and networking.
After the working day is done, which as a freelance proofreader can sometimes be pretty late in the day, it’s great to relax with a cuppa and a book or spend some time in the garden.
So, how does your business day go?
I am a professional freelance proofreader. I proofread for publishers, self-publishing authors, ESL students, small to medium-sized businesses and website developers throughout Australia.
