Developmental Editor Birmingham
When you start writing a book, your thoughts are clear and focused, your enthusiasm is through the roof, and your characters and plot lines practically form themselves. By the time you finish writing a book, however, you’ll no longer have quite as much creative energy — and as a consequence, some things may have slipped through the cracks.
This is why every author who’s completed a book can benefit from a developmental edit: a “big picture” look at your manuscript that points out plot holes, character issues, and any other weak areas or major inconsistencies. A developmental editor might help you follow through on a subplot that got lost around page 100, or develop a character who’s a little flat. They’ll even work with you on your prose to make it more effective, and ensure that you’re conveying scenes properly. (Though keep in mind that if you want someone to work on a line-by-line basis, you’ll need a copy editor as well.)
Basically, a developmental editor will make your book a much better piece of literature. If you’ve finished your first draft, but worry it’s not up to snuff, you can’t go wrong getting a developmental editor in Birmingham to take a look.
