Would you like to work with an editor on your story?
Developmental editing means that you as the writer have an editor whom you can talk to and share materials with on a regular basis. Together we develop a working story that is commensurate with the Genre’s standards.
No matter what level of a storyteller you are at, you can benefit from Story Consulting. The consulting can begin as early as the first spark of a story idea or by working together on finishing or polishing the draft. If you have an idea you want to explore, we would begin by exploring the six core questions to nail down the story you want to tell. After that we would work on how to craft scenes that work and look at the art of telling a story that leads from the promise at the beginning to a surprising, but inevitable ending payoff.
The benefits of working 1-on-1 with a developmental editor:
- For those with manuscripts that have been diagnosed, you can move forward with your work faster by checking in with your editor on a weekly basis.
- The feedback loop between execution and evaluation shortens, thus shortening the craft learning process.
- You can share progress and ask for help as you are doing the work. This method is akin to the structure of THE STORY GRID PODCAST, with me in the role of Shawn and you in the role of Tim.
- Consultations with an expert editor will help you stay accountable for your writing goals, beat resistance, grow your storytelling craft, and guide you in completing your work.
