Where did the name Elementary V Watson come from?
“Elementary, my dear Watson” is the quote famously, and falsely, attributed to Sherlock Holmes (it never actually appeared in the novels by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle). As a proofreader and copy editor, I consider myself a spelling and grammar detective as I explore peoples’ work and uncover errors.
Couldn’t I just use a spell checker?
You should! I’m there for when the spell checker isn’t enough. For example, “as” and “asp”, aren’t misspelt, but if you use the wrong one in a sentence you could be asking for trouble! We all make these little errors which, as the author we don’t pick up on; we know what we wanted to say and tend to read it as we think it should be, not as it actually is.
What are the benefits of using Elementary V Watson?
I provide a personalised, personable, professional service that you can count on. Few companies offer a face-to-face service whether on-line or in person. I know how it feels to write application forms, CVs, essays and personal statements and I understand how important they are to you. They have the power to transform your life.
