This week we’re diving a little more into something I said a couple weeks ago: how proofreading sometimes deals with more suggestions than concretes when it comes to poetry.
I’ve touched on this already, but it’s still something that’s fascinating to me and that I’m constantly thinking about: editing poetry and editing prose are two different things. Ok, not entirely, but they’re different enough for me to notice. Let’s take a look!
Writing and emotions, emotions and writing: they go hand in hand a lot of the time. Of course, a scientific paper probably wants to exclude the touchy-feely stuff, and some poems may even want to be super stark. But often, poetry and fiction rely on emotions because one of the goals is to get readers to feel something.
Let’s talk setting rates as a freelancer, shall we? I get asked about this a lot, and it was something I Googled many times while planning how I was going to freelance. So what’s the right answer?
