I make mistakes. Does that mean I’m not cut out to be a proofreader?

I am very dissatisfied with my career trajectory (it may be laughable to even call it that) and I’m wondering if it is because I am doing something that I really have no aptitude for. Is there really such a thing as an "error-free" proofreader? [more inside]

Help me build a worthwhile career

27 years old and in a bit of a career crisis. I've been drifting between dead-end jobs and I want to steer myself into a more satisfying position. I'm especially interested in getting into a creative industry and/or web development/design, or something else that will play to my (self-perceived) strengths of creativity and technical aptitude. I need advice. So much advice. Perhaps some of you kind folks can help! [NB - This gets pretty long. Also, I'm in London, UK.] [more inside]

How do I break into writing nonfiction books?

My dream is to write nonfiction books, but I have more book ideas than I know what to do with. Does anybody have any advice on how to find an agent or even just somebody knowledgeable about the publishing business who could give some good advice about which book ideas would work and which ideas would fall flat? How does one get past the query letter stage, when you have multiple outlines and chapters and book ideas, but you don't have a finished book?
