  1. Would someone please tie-up this woman's hands. Any more gesticulation and she would take off from the ground. Otherwise, an informative video, gesticulating distractions notwithstanding.

  2. I felt anxious with all the hands movement, needs to do more vids to stop being nervous when doing it, couldn't watch the video but still listened to it 🙂

  3. I think what you discussed here is a combination of copywriting and a bit of proofreading, not copyediting. If anyone is interested in learning more about copyediting, a good starting point is Amy Einsohn's The Copyeditor's Handbook, which gives you tips and tricks right at the beginning of the book.
