Line Edit plus Reader Report

Line Edit plus Reader Report

This service includes a full Line Edit as well as a content critique in form of a Reader Report.

The Line Edit focuses on the writing itself. Its aim is to help you make your writing stronger and tighter. I will look at

 

  • Sentence Structure
  • Word Choice
  • Voice
  • General Style
  • Overused Words
  • Use of Adverbs
  • Use of Description
  • Repetitions
  • Consistency
  • Unnatural Dialogue
  • Flow
  • Confusing Sentences
  • Balance of Action, Narrative, and Dialogue

The Reader Report focuses on the overall strenghts and weaknesses of your manuscript. It identifies all major inssues regarding

 

  • Plot and Plot Holes
  • Characterization and Character Arc
  • Dialogue
  • POVs
  • Voice
  • Setting
  • Pacing
  • Continuity and Inconsistencies

The Line Edit comes with in-document mark-ups and comments, deletions, and insertions (using MS Word's Track Changes), the content critique with an editorial letter.

This is the perfect option for those who want to focus on making their writing shine but also want to rule out any major issues in the novel. This is most likely not the best option for those who have only just completed their first draft as any extensive revisions and rewrites due to big plot issues may mean you will have to invest in a second round of line edits on those changed sections.
