Personal Training for Your Writing
So you decided as of January 1 that you would get in shape. You signed up for a gym membership, and maybe you even sprang for a personal trainer. Pretty common move these days for those trying to get healthy.
But what about the shape of your writing? Are you going it alone? Or maybe you belong to a critique group, but as good as the support and camaraderie are, you wonder if the feedback is on target. Maybe you’d simply like a different perspective.
I’d like to propose an idea: Hire me as your personal trainer for your writing.
Some of my most successful clients started working with me by sending in a chapter or two per week. One client went from earning a place in the top twenty-five in novel chapter contests she entered to earning second and third place showings.
Another benefit from working little by little is that together we catch plot mistakes and major errors before they become problematic. Small revisions are much easier to handle than overhauling an entire novel.
For those who need the push of a deadline, sending a chapter or two weekly is motivating. Someone waiting on the other end for your work can help you with the ABCs of writing–applying butt to chair.
So what would working together cost you? A critique runs you $10 for every 1,000 words. If you’d like a line edit, that same 1,000 words would cost you $12. Very affordable.
Your coffee habit probably costs you more.
So what are you waiting for? For more details, head over to our FAQ page to see what types of books we edit.
Announcing Classes in March . . .
In March I’m going to release classes via individual posts, including suggestions for homework. These will be entirely free for the work alone enthusiast. If you would like feedback, I will arrange an affordable choice for any interested writers. You can also do it mix and match–one lesson you’d like feedback, another you don’t need it.
Check back for more information as it becomes available. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me.
Until then, happy writing!
