Glenda J. Findley has not received any gifts yet
I am a simple wife, mother and grandmother, currently living in a rural Midwestern community that took up writing three years ago and found a special niche in editing and reviewing on Writing.Com. New to freelance editing, I am excited to encompass this new challenge.
All genres and writing styles are welcome to my expanding imagination, as I love being entertained. Yet, I love that entertainment to include deep philosophical, theological, or mystery/suspense thrillers, as well as science or historical fiction, always welcome with subtle or underlying sub-plots. A little romance filtered into a complex story is always a big plus. Characterization is important with realistic social and cultural identities, I must enjoy a story that I edit.
I am an individual that concentrates on grammar and punctuation, yet like to think of the author’s creative and sometimes fragile ego. I only offer suggestions, as story telling is a subjective and artistic art form similar to sculpture, tapestry or painting.
Only having internet availability a few hours a day, I hope this new social network will find a prominent place in that limited period.

I awoke this morning with the following thoughts. Likely as boring as my first blog.
Well, I am over the hump with my first scary blog post and the panic of finding my own errors later. It proves that we all need editors. I scour line by line while enjoying reading the active muses of others, so when I write, oh...my. Those typos fly off my fingers faster than any author could fear.
I am excited to say that, as a new freelance editor, I will soon be working on a new…Continue
Well, at the least, blogging is a scary thought for this writer/editor. To write off the top of my head without all of my usual grammar and punctuation aides. To click that publish button for all to read, rather than the private journal/diary entries written over these many years. This is scary, yet here I am, willing to throw a few words on paper ... opps ... toss aside those old cliches for new ones.
What to write, without boring any possible reader? While considering this…Continue
