Let's talk about you for a moment...

 

WHAT KIND OF WRITER ARE YOU?

  • would you immediately ditch a whole scene after an editorial query questions it?
  • would you refuse even the smallest of changes?

 

Before embarking on your editorial search, ask yourself which way you lean, own this truth about yourself and be willing to share it with the editor or proofreader you are looking to hire.

—Conquer your fear of an editor being judgmental.

Whether you are writing a book or business content, an editor is that good friend at your side, encouraging you, offering advice, and giving you the confidence to put your best words out there.

—Good editing is invisible and respects your words.

 

HOW ATTACHED ARE YOU TO YOUR CONTENT?

  • are you sensitive to changes?
  • do you only want edits that correct errors?

 

Being able to share this kind of information is invaluable. I want to hear about your plans, expectations, hopes, and dreams for your writing project.

The best thing you can do.

Here's the secret. Pay an editor a small fee for a bit of their time. You'll see if their suggestions work for you before moving forward. Consider paying a couple editors and compare. It's important to judge the work rather than the fee. A small investment in research rather than money wasted.
