Editing

Editing clears away the brush so you can see what mattersWhen editing, I worry about things such as split infinitives, subject/verb agreements, punctuation, serial commas, compound adjectives and a whole lot more.

Why? So you—and your audience—don’t have to.

Truth is, I LOVE that stuff! And I go to great pains to ensure you or your readers don’t even think about it. By the time it gets back to you, it’s all about plain language and consistency.

How important is good editing? After all, this is the Internet age where everything is fast, fast, fast–who cares about whether or not u r a gr8 writer, right?

Your audience cares. That’s why my editing services can make a real difference.

You audience won’t tell you that you need an editor. But they will think it. And they will likely act on it.
