If the answer is yes, then you’ve come to the right place: https://writealready2017.wordpress.com/
I’ve been a freelance copyeditor/proofreader for a while now, and I’ve worked on all kinds of projects…but what I really excel at–my superpower, if you will–is taking a finished manuscript and making it shine.
Most copyeditors will take a manuscript and offer suggestions for how you could improve clarity, flow, impact, and plot/character development–and I have done the same for many projects. But the jobs I’ve loved the most have been manuscripts that authors have given me free rein to dive right in and make the changes directly; I suppose you could say I’m an amalgamation of a ghostwriter and copyeditor. But while a ghostwriter typically works from an outline provided by the author, I take your fully developed story and give it the polish and panache it deserves.
Several of my clients wrote stories when they were younger and just felt the writing wasn’t strong enough to actually do anything with them. Others had written their memoirs but wanted them to read more like a story than a diary, but didn’t quite know how to pull it off. And there were those that had certain storytelling strengths–plot development, let’s say–but were lacking in areas such as dialogue or character development. That’s where I come in.
Yes, I can copyedit and proofread your manuscript. Yes, I can take on your writing project…and take it to the next level. But I can do these things without changing your style, voice, or tone. I do not rewrite your story–I rework the trouble spots so that whatever it is you are trying to convey is clear, concise, and impactful.
If you’d like to get a feel for my editing style, send a few pages of your manuscript to https://writealready2017.wordpress.com/contact/and I’ll work my magic free of charge. If you’re happy with what you see, we can take it from there. Trust me with your project–you’ll be so glad you did.
