About Me

I'm a freelance copy editor, a homeschooling mama, and a worship leader at a fairly large church. If I'm not singing, I'm reading: reading for editing work, reading for church work/reading content of what our communications department puts out each week, reading blogs for great ideas, or reading school "stuff."

I love editing, because I can combine something I love (reading) with something at which I'm skilled (telling people why I'm right).

My hubby spoils me and makes me laugh on a daily basis; we have three children still living at home who can be hilarious or who make us mental (there is no in between).

I live in the "chimney" of western PA, with a Great Lake close at hand, the incredible smell of grapes all around me in the fall, and lots of snow in the winters. I love the sharp distinctions between seasons in this part of the country, even though I'll complain about the extremes when I'm in the middle of them.

When I'm not working, I'm most likely teaching myself something odd, like how to play the ukulele. I know for a fact that I'm not housecleaning, and that's the important part.


If you like what you're reading, I invite you to fill out the "Follow by Email" widget in the column on the right. You'll get my amazing insights right in your inbox! How thrilling is that? Or you can follow me on Instagram (as easyreaderediting) for completely different content—check out all that stuff on the upper right of my page where the Instagram feed is scrolling merrily along. I also have an Easy Reader Editing Facebook page I'd love for you to like and follow. I'm on Google+ as myself (Lynda Dietz) and my "follow" badge is . . . you guessed it, right there in the right-hand column for you to click. I try to share different things in each place so  life doesn't get predictable and boring, and you never know what you'll find—or whether I'll be sharing YOUR posts, too.
