🌹 After 8+ years as a freelance line editor, copywriter, and developmental editor, I launched SRD Editing Sevices to provide affordable, top-notch editing services for writers of all experience levels.
🌹 on IG: @shylarosedreams
Contracted to provide developmental editing for a cohort of a mixture of fiction and nonfiction writers over a 16-week program. Guided each writer from 0 written words to a goal of 25K+.
Correcting grammar, spelling, and other technical errors in fiction manuscripts in romance, fantasy, and erotica genres.
For nearly a decade, I've been a freelance writer and editor with individuals and companies around the world, and although I'd like to say I've seen it all, I read something new every day.
I've scaled mountains of manuscripts (fiction and non-fiction), and traversed thousands of pages of business documents and websites, touching on innumerable topics and industries. In dark hours, I've researched countless subjects in order to become educated before the sunrise, and I thoroughly enjoy the learning experience I receive with every project.
I know what separates great writing from writing that is merely good enough. I challenge every sentence to command attention.
I look forward to getting inside your story.
