What is My Philosophy as a Developmental Editor?
I want your book to be the best it can possibly be.
I reverse engineer what makes your characters tick to ensure their physical and emotional journeys make sense.
If there are inconsistencies or weak plot points, I'll spot them and offer suggestions to address them.
Though my main focus is on your manuscript's big picture, I also provide an assessment of your basic craft skills and can describe areas for improvement.
If I see you're struggling with a particular skill, I like to call out a few instances and show by example how they could be strengthened.
At heart, I am a teacher, and my goal is for each developmental edit to be a learning experience for my clients. I offer specific, actionable feedback to help you improve and level up your storytelling skills.
I am supportive and honest with all my clients. You're not paying me for a pat on the back! Learning to write and publish is a long journey that requires both persistence and openness to feedback.
If you're committed to the journey, I'm committed to help you get there.
