hyperbole: An IKEA-like glass of water with a flower in it. (Default)
Nearly a year ago, I discovered PGDP, the organisation of "distributed proofreaders" that brings loads of people together to produce public domain ebooks for Project Gutenberg. It was instant yay! At the end of April this year, as a way of coping with my final final exams, I got myself admitted as a Post-Processor and started learning a whole new world of tasks. It was exciting. And hard. And sometimes very frustrating.

But now it's done, and my work has been reviewed and okayed, and, well, my first project is up on PG! Flora Adair; or, Love works Wonders, by A. M. Donelan: Volume I and Volume II. I'm especially proud of the HTML—I had to learn coding almost from scratch to do this, and it's good.

Hopefully this is just the beginning. I'm nearing the end of another project—a vegetarian cookbook from the early twentieth century—but I have quite a lot of tedious and/or hard bits of work left on it, so I haven't worked on it since I moved back home for the summer. Most likely I'll dive right back in as soon as I move out again (in just two weeks!).
