*This is not a developmental edit. if you want a full developmental edit as well as what's offered above, we can discuss the difference in pricing.*

This edit DOES NOT include proofreading, although I will note and correct every error that I see. I will likely catch most of the errors, but I do advise contracting a second set of eyes to thoroughly proofread your work. (Please note my advice given within the editing landing page.)
