I’m not a native English speaker and here’s my confession: I’m a trained translator with a degree in my pocket. I speak English fairly well, but I never thought I would ever create content on my own. When I got to the English-speaking world of content marketing, I was lost, frustrated, and paralyzed with insecurity. I strongly doubted if I could ever enter a league of those smart guys who create killer content. To be honest, I wasn’t even sure if I could write anything high-quality at all. If you’ve ever been in my shoes, this article is for you. I’m going to share the tips and tricks that have worked (and still work) for me.

My name is Eric and I’m an editor. I’ve been a freelancer for many years working with various companies, marketplaces, students, professionals, journalists, entrepreneurs, copywriters, travel portals, bloggers, musicians, and all other facets of writers. If you’ve submitted a post here at ShoutMeLoud, you may have had an encounter with me. Some of those encounters may have been favorable, and others, well, maybe not so much. First, let me start off by answering this question: Editors are essentially grammar nerds. We seek to make sure that everything the writer is saying is said in the most attractive way possible. But not everyone has a favorable opinion of editors. Here’s why: They nit-pick. They change words and phrases that you think didn’t need to be changed. They’re often at odds with your artistic vision. But there’s one thing you need to remember: Editors are writers, too. I am a writer.
