Development and Line Editing
Sometimes coaching that helps you know what to do is not enough. Sometimes an editor’s skillful hand is what you need–someone who will make the changes and develop the material for you based on the information you supply.
I work individually with Writing It Real members by telephone and email. I make edits that address structure and organization, wording and phrasing, deep meaning and how to evoke it, as well as ways in which your manuscript and pages (poems, personal essays, articles and memoirs) can be developed for marketability.
I keep track of the minutes I use in each pass before I send the work back for further information from you. I let you know with each pass how much of the time you purchased is left. Response time is within a week.
If you need a developmental editor, purchase one or more hours and email me about your work and a description of how you’d like to enhance it. I will send you the email address for sending it to me for editing. I will return your document to you within a week as well as arrange to call you if we need telephone time.
