Maybe it’s a heart-wrenching love story or urban fantasy series. The first draft of that novel you’ve had kicking around in your head. Or a research paper in need of a quick check for grammatical errors.
Whatever you’re busy writing, the Sentence Shop does the dirty work, proofreading your story line by line, to turn out flawless copy so you can focus on what’s important: getting your text published and read.
Writing should illuminate and uplift. It should also serve as a direct conduit for all of the narrator’s emotions: fear, anger, frustration, love–even those we struggle to express or assign the appropriate word or phrase.
Telling your story from an accurate perspective can be difficult. Events may follow a linear course in one’s mind, yet become convoluted or misconstrued as they flow onto the page. The opening of your memoir might sound as if it’s been told by someone else. You might have trouble recognizing your own voice.
Sometimes, it’s necessary to bring an intermediary, a word guide, into the process. Someone who’ll pull up a chair and channel your work through her own senses, giving it a new perspective. As your editor, I’m that second, third, or fourth pair of eyes that lands on your work. I won’t be satisfied until you’re satisfied.
We all have a softer side. One that opens into a world of introspection, where all the mystery and joy of our subjective realities can be unveiled and explored and shared with others. I want to explore that world with you, if you’re willing.
Even if we don’t find what we’re looking for, you’ll still have a good story.
