Editing Services

A lot of aspiring writers have the misconception that an editor’s job is to fix all the problems in someone’s work. The cold hard truth is that there is a lot more that goes into editing than some people assume.

Firstly, there is a variety of editing methods. Terminology may change from person-to-person, but the methods are always the same:

 

Development/Structure/Macro Editing

Generally, this area of editing is looking at the grand scheme of things. This will ask questions concerning your manuscript’s narrative structure, pacing, plot holes and continuity. Characters – their characterization and relatability – will also be looked at.

 

Line/Copy/Micro Editing

This looks at every individual line. Some may think of this as Proofreading, wherein issues with spelling and punctuation are amended. On a broader level, this ensures the writing is clear, consistent (with style, tense, and POV), and other minor issues.

 

Payment

As of February 2016, I will offer all the above services in a one package deal for $10 per 1000 words. Payments can be made through PayPal. If you are interested in my services, please email me at amyrae2609@gmail.com
