This is my favorite service to provide, as it’s unique to each client and each project. We work together to improve your manuscript based on the big picture issues such as content, structure, plot and characterization. The goal is sharpening your work for your target audience.
This is a collaborative effort, so I will read your manuscript twice: the first time to provide feedback and my suggestions for improvement, the second to assess how the changes are working and to address any additional concerns you have.
Developmental editing includes an edit letter or manuscript critique after the first reading, and in-line notes.
If you’ve included copyediting services in your request, they will be completed during the second read.
