Do you need help making sure your writing is fluid, consistent, exciting, and concise? Are there run-on sentences, tonal shifts, or unclear direction? This service is for you.
Developmental editing is necessary for a work that needs a reformation of creative content, writing style, and language usage. For fiction, that would consist of characterization, dialogue, and plot development. This process will help you structure your project. Rewriting and reorganizing will most likely occur. You will receive comments on plotting, character motivation, and consistency where rewrites may take away from your unique voice.
For non-fiction clientele, we will ensure you are keeping your audience hooked by staying focused on your main objective with each chapter.
Grammar and punctuation are not the main focus. You shining through as a fantastic writer and improving the flow of your overall body of work is the goal.
