Edit your story, paper, resume

30 per hour

We use words to entertain, secure business deals, negotiate relationships, exchange information, express appreciation....and words are our most powerful tool. Do your words portray your message the way you intend? In this age of short attention spans, crafting a concise, clear message is crucial. More words does not equal a better message.

I will review up to 6 pages of your short story, letter, blog post/article, paper, screenplay, resume/cover letter, and make recommendations on how to condense, enhance clarity, continuity, grammar, style, point of view, theme, and symbolism in your message. I will help you craft words of significance and influence, to make sure your words accurately reflect you and your intent.

Training & Qualifications


I'm a voracious reader, English teacher, foreign language learner, Executive Assistant (also known as Editor to CEOs), poetry lover and language explorer. I love dissecting language, lyrics and dialogue, to unpack meaning and to create the maximum impact for your words.

Availability & Preferences


Monday pm, Friday pm, Sunday am/pm

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Shue LaRue

I grew up in an enormous, scientific, do-it-yourself household. We didn't have a TV in the house, but we did have books, music, experiments, stories, and countless negotiations. (Think "Captain Fa...ntastic" in a town of 3200 people - yup, we were THOSE weirdos) Life is a great teacher if you're curious, exploratory, constantly learning (and not distracted by screens). Honestly, lack of $$ was a great motivator and taught us how to be resourceful and proactive...to be a lemonade stand entrepreneur, to make jewelry, candles, and aromatherapy products, to develop gluten free recipes, to entertain ourselves with an 8mm camera we picked up at a garage sale. And this was waaaay before YouTube. If we wanted it, we figured out how to make it / trade it. In my family the experts were the Finder, the Letter Writer, the Scary Storyteller, the Map Reader, the Challenger, the Mechanical Tinkerer, the Adopter of Strays, the Photographer/Historian, the Poet, the Performer. You probably have something similar with your family. When everyone has a specialty, bartering is practical, efficient, and makes great business sense. Bartering gives us all the opportunity to consult with the experts, and negotiate the exact thing you're looking for, rather than making do with a product or service that was packaged for the masses. I'm a photographer, a writer, an enjoyer of music, a creator of compilations, silly songs and videos, a yogi, a chef, a feng shui-er, reflexologist, traveler, and professional brainstormer. I love to dive into something new, iron out the bugs, then pass onto others what worked for me. And I love to learn from others who are passionate experts in some field or skill that I don't have. Have I mentioned that bartering rocks?!show more
