105. I Can Spot a Typo at 20 Paces
Tell everyone you know what you do. I’m a PR consultant who also copyedits books, scripts and websites. Copyediting includes proofreading, so when I say I can spot a typo at twenty paces, it gets a laugh – and people remember. Sometimes, I’ll send a friendly note telling someone of a typo on their website. My email sig says “copyeditor/proofreader” and gives my website. I’m president of a writers organization in SoCal. and when I don’t blow my own horn, some members do it for me.
