Copyediting (1001-5000 words)
I will look over and edit any sort of written document up to 5,000 words for this price. I will mark anything wrong with grammar, punctuation, etc. However, I will not correct things such as style or voice. That is up to the author.
If you are unsatisfied with the first round of edits, I will provide a second free of charge.

November is always a busy time for me. Odd, that. But anyway, time to cut off any rambling before it has a chance to gain momentum.

Even though it is November, I plan to at least try keeping my sequel to The Clocksmith going. I would be nearly finished with this draft had I not decided it would be a good idea to lump in my vague plans for a third book. So now this sequel will be about as long as The Clocksmith, which will look nice when it's all finished. That's the plan, anyway. Who knows what will happen between now and publication?

NaNoWriMo has once again descended upon us like a big maelstrom of literary joy. And once again, I will be participating. I'm quite pleased with myself for reaching my daily goal today, so with a little luck, that success will follow me into the rest of the month, as well. Are any of you also participating this year? If so, I'd love to hear about your experience! If not, perhaps you would like to give it a try. It never hurts to take a look, at least.

It took me a while, but I finally got around to making a Patreon account. For those of you who don't know, Patreon is more or less a website that allows you to support artists you like monetarily, similar to how websites like Kickstarter work. If you are interested, you can check out my profile here.
If you aren't interested in donating to me, I completely understand. But if you don't mind, I would like to take a moment to explain exactly what the money would be used for and why I would be so grateful for any donations, no matter how small. I recently started working two jobs. One of those jobs is only a seasonal position, but it has given me some good perspective on work and life in general. I now can see that, as long as I am on my own, I will not be able to support myself without also working more or less constantly. I know people who have done that, and I have seen how quickly they burn down to nothing. I do not want that, of course, so you could say that the Patreon account was made in hope of helping support my attempts at financial independence. However, there is another reason I need the money. My girlfriend of some years lives in Australia, which is on the other side of the world from me. This makes things that should be simple - such as visiting - predictably expensive. It has been over a year since we have seen each other in person because of the price of flying. I want nothing more than to just spend time with her, and so I also hope that Patreon will help me raise enough money for at least one trip.
Thank you for taking the time to read through that. I suspect it might have become a bit unfocused at some point, but I will keep it the way it is to maintain some semblance of candor. That will be my excuse, anyway. :giggle:

That's all the news I have for today. Thank you again for taking the time to read about my plight, and have a great month!

I've decided it might be rather nice to have a point prize for my next contest, so I'm now collecting donations for that.

Greetings and salutations, friends! My name is Cody Brown, author of The Clocksmith. When not writing, I can typically be found adding detail to the land of Brigard, which my novels take place in. Occasionally, I have been known to dabble in the arcane arts of game design.
If you find me doing something other than the above three things, I am probably a doppelganger sent to destroy everyone I hold dear.

We all know you're wonderful, but in case you've forgotten for a moment, here's a reminder.

YOU DID SOMETHING AWESOME TODAY!

To see what nice thing you've been accused of doing (and who else is being recognized), find the widget by the same name on my profile page!

Helpful hint:  It's near the bottom, above my webcam image!

Have a wonderful rest of your day!
