Thank you for your gentle and genuine reply!
This strikes me as a good time to switch to a private messaging system, but I am new to Itch and I don't see a function for that?
I would like to tentatively offer myself as a resource to help you with proofreading. I need to think about how much time I want to offer, but I do have extra time and I enjoy editing and story creation. Please let me know what you think about that, and if there is a way for us to continue this conversation without taking up more space on the comment board.
