Correct Your Course

You need to know if your story has a serious air leak, or if the gears just need some grease. Maybe your character has clockwork that needs tuning, or fogged goggles that need cleaning. Either way, as long as the problem isn’t a mechanical kraken, we’re in (though, if we’re honest, monster hunting might be our next venture).

In any case, it’s critical to identify plot holes, structure issues, pacing hitches, and other big-picture errors plaguing your story. 

As the creator, you know all the fine-points of your fictional universe. The reader on the other side of the page, however, may not be getting the right elements in the right order. You’ve been so close to your story for so long it’s difficult to determine how your story reads to new eyes.

story coaching

This option is for you if:

  • You’ve overwritten by 10k, 20k, or more
  • Your story needs clarity
  • You’re not sure if you’re doing enough to push those tropes in new directions
  • Your writing doesn’t yet feel alive on the page

A developmental edit is designed to pinpoint exactly what’s not working for the reader. We’ll take a deep-dive into your completed manuscript and assess the plot, worldbuilding, characters, pacing, dialogue, and more in order to ensure the narrative is cohesive and the story’s scope is fully realized.

What we provide:

A full-scope look at your manuscript by a professional who understands story structure.

Extensive feedback on your strengths and weaknesses as a writer and how you can fill in those gaps.

A 10-page summary report pointing out weaknesses in the story and information on how to fix them.

Prolific in-document comments citing examples and specific areas for improvement.

A follow up personal coaching session to answer questions and discuss a path forward.
