Being A Text Editor in This New Age

Lots of things have changed since I started out as a journalist years ago and one of them is the way that a text editor on the Internet works their trade. When I started, we used pencils to mark all the edits that we needed to make, but there's no doubt in my mind that the track changes used today with the Word program is a much more efficient way for manuscript editors to work.
I've done editing jobs( both fiction and nonfiction) for people as far away as Australia and Puerto Rico and the Internet makes it easy and enjoyable. I started online as a manuscript editor with two of the bigger online companies but I know the decision to go out on my own brings a more immediate relationship for my clients.
