Hello, my Scripturients!
I am excited to announce a project that I have been contemplating starting for a few months now. I get urges like these every so often these urges were the same as the kind that created this blog so, since I trusted the urges then, I decided to trust them now.
So Katelyn what is this project?
Well, I need your help for it, in particular, I need my fellow writers.
I am launching my editing service. I will be working in the developmental editing business. If you don't know what this is, a developmental edit is an edit most of us do once we finish writing the draft. It is the process of going through and reading the manuscript finding plot holes, examining character development, the overall arc of your story. I believe that the developmental edit is much more important than the copy edit. GASP right? But in my head, you can have a book that is spotless, but if you have flat characters and a ton of plot holes, I am not going to want to read it.
I think we can all think of a story that we could just feel in our soul could have been better if someone else had just given it a small nudge in the right direction.
So what services will I be offering?
I will have four different services:
1. First Chapter Critique- $30
2. First 50 Pages- $75
3. Reader's Report- $.005 Per Word
4. Full Critique- $0.010 per word
Head on over to my editing page here for more details as to what each package has.
Katelyn when are you going to start offering editing services?
I am glad that you asked. I am starting to take submissions today February 9th! That being said while I will be open for submissions I know based on my month I will not be able to start working on submissions until March 1st. So if you are looking into getting a project done quickly, please keep that in mind. If you would be interested in being some of my first clients, please fill out the contact form below and tell me about your project to see whether or not we would be a good fit.
I am really excited to begin this next step, and I hope you are excited to have another option in the sea of people out there. If you have any questions, you can fill out the contact form below or send me a message on Twitter at @scripturienting.
Love you all,
Find me on the interwebs
