I have to see a thing a thousand times before I see it once.
Mr. Wolfe was likely not referring to the number of times he proofread or edited his works to find errors.
Alternately, how many times do we proof our own work before we STOP SEEING it?
Proofreading and Editing
In addition to assembling creative copy, Sheila will also proofread and edit work YOU have written.
Or, you could just read it a thousand times to discover you did not catch something as basic as a typo or misspelled word. 🙁
Long before Sheila was a writer, she was an award-winning typist.
Do you “hunt and peck”?
Are you a two-finger typist?
Had you prefer to simply record your work and never go near a keyboard?
Contact Sheila to discuss how she can transcribe and format your scribbled text or audio file into print form.
Speeches, Public Relations and Press Releases
Protecting and promoting your public image is crucial to your brand.
As stated on a previous page, in many instances YOU are your brand. That could not be more true for those of you who are in public service.
- Every speech, press conference, and news release is a direct reflection on you, your office, and the people you represent and serve.
In this day of instantaneous communication transmission, it is critical to choose your words wisely the first time. Otherwise, you might find yourself spending a lot of time “explaining” what seemed clear to you but communicated a different meaning to the public.
Become a celebrity or expert in your field by self promotion.
- Not everyone starts out as an international celebrity or expert in their field. Most start on a much smaller scale and “promote” their way up.
Get noticed early by setting yourself apart. Start with the end in mind. Know where you want to be and promote yourself as though you are already there. Contact Sheila to discuss how she can assemble your story, your brand, your image with the end in mind.
Stand out. Don’t just blend in.
Be the peacock.
