1k Words Professionally Edited

150


150 per unit - Virtual OK - Posted Dec 07, 2018

Wondering what it's like to work with a professional fiction editor?

I'll do a full pass on 1000 words from your manuscript. What does this mean?

It means I will edit that portion of your story the way I would if you were engaging me for a professional paid editorial review. This includes basics, of course, like word choice, passive verbs, adverbs, etc. But it will also include much more in depth comments, as much as I can with only 1000 words, about characterization, character motivation, effective action scenes, scene structure, and other things a content editor helps authors with.

This Service is meant to do a couple things for an author. First, give an idea of what it's like to work with a pro editor. Second, show where the strengths and weaknesses lie in the author's writing, at least in that piece.

Unless this is a very, very short work, I won't be able to add much about overall story structure or plot. But you will come away with an idea of what is working and what isn't and, most importantly, how to fix what isn't.

I will be putting a 3 deal/month limit on this Service. You can choose to engage the Service 3 times for up to 3,000 words (or as many as are still available when you create the deal :) ).

Training & Qualifications

Oh. And I love helping authors :)

Find Time to Write
I love the idea of people coming together to share strengths and mitigate weaknesses! I think we've lost our sense of community in the era of hyperconnectivity. I'm so happy to be here! :)

About Venessa Giunta

I'm a writer of weird things, an editrix extraordinaire, and a little bit of a nerd. The TV show Supernatural is one of my favorites (I'm a pretty dedicated viewer) and I was devastated when Sense8 wa...s cancelled (damn you, Netflix!). I run a small writers' group on Facebook called The Writing Tribe (feel free to join if you're serious about your writing :) ). I've been a professional fiction editor for more than a decade and in 2018 I finally pulled my own writing off the back burner and published 3 books (2 under a pen name). I'm planning on publishing 5 in 2019. :) Urban fantasy and horror are my typical genres, though I also throw in a lot of suspense, as well. As you can see, my life is immersed in writing :) I live in Atlanta, GA, with my husband -- also known as my muse -- and three cats who basically rule the house, but won't pay the mortgage. I've been called the kind of evil that inspires hugs.show more
