You get more bees with flowers/honey than you do by just waving your hand. It's best if you provide a story description, so editors can see whether they're interested in the story or not. Give them a chance to evaluate the story, and a feel for your level of writing.

Story descriptions, codes (so they can discount squick stories), and genre are useful when hunting for editors.

First round of editing: I need an editor, I enjoy writing but I know my grammar and spelling are lacking.

First the comma goes before the space. Second in "a" vs. "an" conflicts if the word begins with a vowel it's "an". Third you need to identify who needs an editor. Fourth the comma between writing and but is unnecessary.

If we are going to pile in here, you might want to reduce the number of "t"s in Edittor, the posting title.

Jeez guys. Look up the meanings of 'bludgeon' and 'discourage'.

Based on his post here, I agree, he needs, at least, a proofreader. I count six errors in that one sentence.

Based on the content of the OP and since he never replied, I'd say he's a troll messing with you all.

Just drop it.
