I'm looking for a volunteer typing assistant for my writing projects, which is currently a romantic drama. You will need to be competent enough with computers and word processors to be able to utilize Google Docs, Drive, email, and Search at a basic level, at least.
I live in Janesville, Wisconsin. So, if this is too long of a commute for you then telecommuting is welcome.

About myself

My name is Edgar. I am physically and visually restricted hence the need for a typing helper. I have aspirations to be an author of novels and screenplays.
I am laid back, a bit of a comic nerd and I love working with people.

About the Work

Either in person or telecommuting, I will talk and ask that you transcribe.
We currently use Google Docs.
If you telecommute, then you will need your own computer. If we work together in person, then I have computers we can use.
I may also ask that you look up or research occasionally. Usually small simple topics, phrases or people.
Your creative input is welcome and as well as your constructive criticisms.

Scheduling

The amount of hours and days will depend on your schedule, but I prefer not to work more than 4-5 hours at once, breaks as needed. I am very flexible in this regard. Early, late, weekends, whatever works for you. Whatever the schedule, however, consistency is paramount.
This work will be very long term, so it should fulfill any volunteer credit hours.

Letter of Recommendation and Acknowledgement

If we work together for substantial length of time (or if you’re a college student fulfilling a volunteer credit and we work throughout the length of the required hours) than I would be willing to write a letter of recommendation, as well as be a reference, detailing your work ethic and character for future employers or for whatever reason.

In all likelihood, I will also consider including you in the book acknowledging your help and your part in helping me achieve one of my biggest dreams.
