MANUSCRIPT EDIT – Market the Bleep Out of It

This manuscript was written for businesses to assist them with improving their marketing strategies. I took the book through several substantive, developmental and line edits. The book needed to be rearranged, and the overall flow and quality of writing was improved. Once the overall edits were complete, I went back through the book to copyedit and proofread, making sure it was error free. Finally, I developed the style and format for the entire book and made sure all pages followed suit.

Recipe for Joy

My first Christmas in Chicago, I hosted my boyfriend’s parents. Despite also working and going to school, I set out to make the complete Christmas dinner from Martha Stewart’s magazine including a bûche de Noël, a dish it takes days to make. The house also needed to be flawless so I cleaned from top to bottom. Offers were made to bring a dish to dinner, but I refused. When my boyfriend offered to help scrub the toilets, I told him no.
