You’ve written a story, now what? You want your ideas and characters to be conveyed to the reader in the smoothest way possible. As a fellow writer, I understand the trust necessary to hire an editor for your beloved work. That is where my services come in! Read on for three choices.
#1: Line by Line. I will use my extensive knowledge of creative and scholarly writing to look for errors in such areas as sentence variance, overuse of adverbs, of generic descriptive words, and showing instead of telling. I will either highlight problem areas or make potential changes and let you decide whether to keep the new version or not. Line by line focuses on grammar and spelling in order to relay a cohesive story. Price: $0.005 per word with half at the start and half upon completion and delivery.
#2: Creative. I will work through the story looking for continuity, clarity, and places in which further development of plot, setting, or story is necessary. I will not go into grammar or spelling unless it affects one of the three things above. From beginning to end, your story should read smoothly and allow readers to track the characters with ease. Price: $0.005 per word with half at the start and half upon completion and delivery.
#3: Combination. This is the most comprehensive and time-consuming offer. I run through it as a line by line, and then do a creative pass. You will be updated as I go, allowing for proper molding of the story by you, the author. Price: $0.008 per word with half at the start and half upon completion and delivery.
The time allotted for every body of work depends greatly on the length and the amount of editing already done by the author. I highly recommend writers do their own revision/editing to clean up the manuscript as much as possible before passing it to me.
