My name is Sarah Day, and I’m a writer much like yourself.
You’re probably shopping around for editors, so let’s get to the point.
I find that most writers need different levels of editing and have different preferences, so I work off the base rate of $0.007/word per round.
The best way to see if I’m a good fit for you is to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’re feeling anti-social, you can check out my blog and get a feel for my style or learn more about me.
Now, let’s get to the fun stuff.
What I Specialize In
If you’re looking for a proofreader, I’m not your gal. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll catch spelling errors and misplaced punctuation. But that’s not really my forte.
Here’s what I can help you accomplish:
- Writing natural sounding dialogue that draws your reader into the characters’ conversations and emotions. You put a lot into your characters, so let’s make sure they sound like real people.
- Improving the flow of your writing to avoid distracting your reader with both stylistic and technical “bumps”. I want to help you maintain that glorious suspension of disbelief that your readers crave!
- Identifying inconsistencies in style and voice. I look beyond basic mechanics to help you round out what makes your writing sound like you.
- Finding opportunities to bring your story to the next level through symbolism, setting, language and character development. I want to help make sure none of your efforts fall flat.
What You Need to Know About Me
My goal is to always help my writers grow. When I complete an edit, I include a personal letter discussing your natural strengths and what you can practice to make your writing better.
Making sure you feel confident and happy with your finished piece is a driving force behind my editing style. I never want you to feel “bad” at writing, though I will always be honest about what you need to improve. Writing is extremely personal, and I will approach your manuscript with compassion.
