Writing Help For Authors

 

Great storytelling isn't necessarily based on the most exciting, clever or funny content. It's all about delivery.  

 

 

How can you express yourself in a way that is:  

simple, clear and to the point?

 

You've been working on this book for months, years, (decades even!) and you're finally ready to: (a) hand it over for serious editing, or (b) begin exploring your publishing options. Believe me, I understand at this point it's become like your baby. You've carried it in your brain for so long and you're nervous about handing it over to some stranger's chopping block.

 

This is more than just having a fresh pair of eyes proofread for typos. The complete story is fully contained in your mind. While it's impossible to fit the entire panoramic view of your thoughts into a single manuscript, a precise editor will point out the gaps and wrinkles within the narrative, then skillfully organize what's written into the complete story you intended.
