How Does the Writing Coaching and Editorial Process Work?

After clarifying your goals, we create a custom-designed coaching plan to help you:

  • Determine your audience, vision, and voice
  • Clarify your main themes
  • Devise a narrative structure
  • Develop a timeline for completion

We then interact via phone and email on ideas and rough drafts to help you overcome obstacles and move smoothly toward the completion of your goals.

When it comes to polishing your final manuscript for publication, I perform an in-depth edit to help you:

  • Eliminate typos, wordiness, and awkward phrasing
  • Deepen the characters or analysis
  • Hone the beginning and end for the greatest impact
