EDITING

A manuscript is like a fine piece of music. Pitch and tone are essential, as well as the overall impact of the composition. Individual notes are key and must be attended to. A sensitive ear, experience and skill, and a love of the craft are the key elements that YOU should be seeking in an editor.

In working on a manuscript I try to take care to read for tone and note what is most compelling in the parts and the whole of the work, as well as what leaves me cold. I try to be your ideal reader, the one who really “gets” you and expects and desires your best story, and your strongest storytelling skills.

Whether writing up an in-depth analysis of your work, doing a thorough line edit, or both, I treat your work like a child, whom I have been honored with the gift of Godmothering. Like you, my focus will be on removing the obstacles from your child’s life, and helping that child to grow and thrive in the real world, in keeping with his or her true nature. You are not a generic scribe, your project not just any old piece of work, and I am not a hack editor. Individuality is key, for without that spark of humanness, of uniqueness, how can we expect your work to strike a universal chord in the outer world?
