I’ll go through your manuscript twice. The first round is general constructive criticism regarding plot, structure, story arc, and areas where your work can be made stronger. I’ll send your manuscript back with comments. You do some rewriting and send it back.
On the second read I’ll tear apart your document line by line, helping you improve pacing, structure, tone, word choice, organization, etc. I am ruthless (though I’ll tell you kindly) about cutting boring scenes, amping up drama, adding/removing necessary/unnecessary detail, clearing up confusion, and helping tie up plot points.The finished document will be packed with comments and corrections. This critique can be hard to stomach and will require another rewrite on your end, but I promise if you put in the work, you will be happy with the results.
