I'm always happy to hear about your wordsmithing needs and to brainstorm how I can help take your project to the next level—whether you're looking for line edits, developmental or conceptual support, or ghostwriting.
As an editor, I am quick and thorough. I dive in. I pick up what you're putting down. I ask "why?" a lot. I love to find the meat of the story, to engage with it, and to trim the fat. I offer line and developmental edits in a collaborative and respectful spirit. I don't believe that bringing out the editorial firing squad makes for a better (or happier) writer, and I am much more suited to delivering critique with kind honesty. I believe in "staying in the room," even when it's hard. As my writing guru Anne Lamott says, "Keep your butt in the chair." As a writer myself, I understand how hard this is to do, and I support my clients in finding ways to overcome the urge to bolt and to stay past the end of the scene.
