My words fly up, my thoughts remain below:
Words without thoughts never to heaven go.
~ Hamlet, William Shakespeare
You’ve written a book or story, but perhaps your words, instead of flying up, are stuck on the ground. Or perhaps you are not sure if what you’ve written fits into a certain genre or that anyone will be interested in reading it. You need an editor, an experienced professional who can assess the value and quality of your work.
An editor is more than someone who corrects spelling errors and understands the past perfect verb form. A good editor perceives what a writer is trying to communicate beyond just the words on the page. A good editor can find the precious gem in a short story that has been buried under too much unessential detail. A good editor enhances what works well in a book and helps the writer improve the sections that don’t work as well. Working with a good editor, you can polish your writing so that it is memorable, a story or book you can be proud of and that readers will be glad to have found.
If your writing has reached the stage where an expert outside opinion is needed, I am here to help!
