“You write to discover what you want to say. You rewrite
to discover what you have said and then rewrite
to make it clear to other people.”
I offer a variety of services to assist with any stage
of your manuscript or writing project.
Manuscript Assessment: Suggested for manuscripts/projects in the first or second draft stages where authors are looking for an evaluation of various mechanical, structural or story aspects. Assessments can also be provided for individual chapters.
Manuscript Edit: Suggested for manuscripts/projects near the final stages before submission or publication where authors are looking for an in-depth screening of their work, line edits and fine-tuning. Edits can also be provided for individual chapters.
General Information: page, manuscript, payment and quote information.
“What lasts in the reader’s mind is not the phrase but the effect the phrase created: laughter, tears, pain, joy. If the phrase is not affecting the reader, what’s it doing there? Make it do its job or cut it without mercy or remorse.”
