Developmental editing is the first stage of the editing process. It focuses on a manuscript's non-grammar elements such as structure, plot, characterization, world-building, pacing, and descriptions to enhance your story.
As writers, we all become attached to our work after countless hours plotting and drafting our books. This makes us blind to our manuscripts' weak points, resulting in missed opportunities to strengthen our stories. To better engage your readers and keep them turning pages, have a developmental editor help you bring out your manuscript's full potential.
My goal is to help you grow as a writer by giving you detailed feedback of your manuscript to build your writing skills and strengthen any weak points in your story. I will work closely with you throughout the process, including post-revisions, to maximize your editing experience.
