Free Edit!

October is my favorite time of year. Not only are the bugs finally gone and the leaves a glorious color, but October is also my birthday month. I’ve never been one to celebrate. Often the day goes by without fanfare. But last year I decided it was time to begin celebrating each birthday as a reflection of my thankfulness for another year on this earth. A year ago today I telephoned my oldest and dearest pals from high school and arranged my own birthday party, a tradition we have honored at each of our birthdays. The lunches with my high school friends have been the highlight of my year, reminding each of us to celebrate the milestone instead of moaning about the wrinkles on our faces.

So what could I do this year, besides the annual birthday lunch, to celebrate my special day? I have decided to give away my editor services to one of my readers. I will take up to ten pages of work (it can be fiction or nonfiction) from one of you during the month of October.

All you need to do is comment below — just tell me what you are working on and say hello. I will choose one person from the comments.

Happy birthday to me!! I get the pleasure of doing something for someone else! Pass this information along to your writing friends! Tell them to register for my blog and give a comment below. I already have a number in mind for the winner, so it’s all luck from here out. Comment as many times as you want and tell your friends to do the same.

I hope to see your post and I will notify you if you’re the winner. I can’t wait to read your work, who ever you are!

    Hi Angela,
    What a kind and generous gift you are offering, once again. I am working on a memoir piece about a bad car accident I was in with my husband and how it changed my life. I’m on my fifth revision so far and sure could use a second pair of eyes. I’m struggling with the opening paragraph and writing an effective hook to grab the reader.

    Happy Birthday!
