MrSpock
Availability: 30 Hours + per week
Credentials:
Aroslav (A Thousand Words, Art Project, Yelloweye), EzzyB (all of the Chaos stories), the_scribbler, Strickland83, Warlord I'm a published non-fiction author who has for many years been an acquisitions editor for a small niche-market publishing house, in addition to continuing my work as a freelance developmental editor and occasional book doctor. I've been around on Storiesonline and before it on ASSTR and the newsgroups for longer than I'd care to admit, and in that time I've worked with and edited for a number of well known writers of erotica. Some of the better known writers I've worked with over the years include: aroslav and EzzyB (currently), the_scribbler, Strickland83, Gina Marie Wylie, Warlord, El Sol, and Don Lockwood, among many others. Oh, and I support the Oxford comma. ;)
Turn Offs:
Extreme violence, ws, abuse treated erotically, pure stroke stories. I have nothing against pure stroke stories, but don't want to expend my time editing a plotless stroke story. If you have a pure stroke story with a plot, we can talk.
Prefers:
Romance, Coming of Age, School/College, Slow, Genre-type stories (ie: Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Time Travel, Historical, etc.)
Comments:
I generally prefer doing developmental or story/"big picture" editing more than I do doing basic copyediting/proofreading for spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors. Of course I'll correct those things where I find them, but my preference is to focus my editing energy on your overall story, looking at its plot, flow, continuity, character development, pacing, readability, and other such issues. If necessary I can also do the proofreading, but I also know of a number of excellent proofreaders and copyeditors that I've often worked with who may be willing to take on another author. As a rule, another set of eyes during editing/proofreading passes is always good! I'm comfortable editing both British and Australian English and general usage, however may not be fluent in slang or expressions. I also have extensive knowledge of sailing and nautical subjects, including off-shore and long-distance sailing. I have a knowledge of flying private planes / light aircraft, and an extensive knowledge of ambulances/EMS/emergency rooms/paramedicine in the US.

I'm a 50 year old physics teacher, in good shape and not too bad looking. I am Brazilian and my English is not very good. I write these stories to fill the void in my real sex life. I am married, but my wife has long since shut herself off completely from sex, due to a deep and constant depression. As I spend a lot of my life taking care of her, I ended up completely abandoning my sex life. In a way, writing these stories and reading many others that are published here, help me to overcome this emptiness in my existence.

I'm a native speaker of English (and German). My main credential, I suppose, is that I read much and errors go "clang" in my head. :-)
Turn Offs:
snuff, human waste as main theme, MM, Mb and young children
Prefers:
A plot is pretty important, one that can keep a read engaged is a bonus. Romance is always nice, as is a well-intentioned protagonist.
Comments:
I'm unsure of my ability to perform full "editorial" services - I can form a sentence and sometimes even a full paragraph, but for plotlines I'm mostly just a consumer. I can proofread, and possibly detect some continuity issues.

Credentials:
Dutch native speaker with extensive command of English. Worked as a senior editor for a big news outlet for a decade. Working knowledge of French, German, Italian, Spanish and Latin so quote away. Well-rounded education; both arts and sciences are safe with me.
Turn Offs:
No incompletes - finish it before you call on me. No bestiality, scat, extreme pedo, rape/noncon, snuff, or anything that dehumanizes people (but I'm a sucker for a good revenge story). I don't get hentai so your futa tales best go elsewhere, too.
Prefers:
I'll try most anything once but a coherent plot and some character development would be nice. Due to time constraints, I'd prefer somewhat shorter stories for now.
Comments:
Anal doesn't do anything for me, but *being* anal... hoo boy. I hate errors. That includes bad semantics, iffy punctuation, continuity problems, factual inaccuracies and everything else I can find. I research everything I don't know enough about and I don't half-ass anything, so I'm not the fastest editor out there (but I will find all the time I need if your story is worth it). I can make any good story better, but I'm not going to invest in cleaning up grade-schooler stream-of-consciousness stroke stories. If you're better than that, I'd be happy to dispense some tough love.

I would like to start with smaller assignments to get my feet wet, but I can be flexible. I also feel that I can be of assistance to authors outside the United States who write stories set in the U.S. As I’m sure you know, some things are called different names here. For example, “calling” someone in the U.S. means using a telephone. If you’re going in person, you “drop by” or “pay a visit”. Getting pissed only means one thing. Thanks!

My standard advice for writing: Keep notes for longer stories to avoid inconsistencies. Write a thousand words or more per day, even if it's crap and you delete it the following day. Your first million published words are just practice. If people hate what you write, you're just practicing. This is advice I read somewhere - I can't recall who wrote it, now. But, it works.

Credentials:
Nothing specific to writing other than a VERY long history of reading a wide variety of stories both online and in print. I am an excellent speller and am somewhat of a spelling nazi when it comes to misuse of their/they're/there, to/too/two etc.
Turn Offs:
I'm not a huge fan of Extreme BDSM (ie: snuff, amputation, needle/knife play) rape (except where it plays a minor role as part of a characters background)
Prefers:
Pretty much anything not in my turn-offs.
Comments:
I am here as an editor - not an author. Therefore, don't expect me to write your story for you. I'll be happy to make suggestions if you get stuck, but the job of writing the story is yours. I will usually have chapters back to the author within 48 hours
