Eight Things to Look Out for When Editing Your Writing
Editing is an essential part of the creative writing process that allows you to refine and polish your work. While writing is the act of putting your ideas onto paper,
I have helped authors write and perfect their novels, gain publishing deals, receive full manuscript requests from agents, and be accepted into academic writing programmes.
You’re in the right place if you’re looking for a professional editor who uses strengths-based feedback.
I can offer developmental editing, help with query packages, chapter reviews and more, so book in for a free chat with me today about how I can help you with your work.
I love discovering new fiction and helping writers polish up their work.
Is your novel missing something? Are you so close to it that you can no longer see the story? Do you need an experienced eye on your writing? Here’s what I offer:
Are you ready to write, be held accountable, and get that novel finally going?
As well as in-text comments to give examples and recommendations throughout your manuscript, my edits include a comprehensive editorial report that breaks down your novel into sections so that you can understand how your work can be improved and see a path forward. Included in the price of this package is an hour long coaching session post edit so that you can ask me any questions you have. This is perfect for the writer who is ready to make their work shine!
If you have any questions about Developmental Editing, feel free to contact me.
As well as having an experienced writer to hold you accountable, you will benefit from my in-depth expertise in writing novels.
You will discuss all relevant areas of writing to assist you on your journey, including publishing routes (traditional and self).
You will also get an entire novel developmental edit when you’re ready – this alone is worth its weight in gold.
I believe that everyone has the potential to write something great, and that with education, focus, framing & creative learning, we can write wonderful stories together.
You can put down a 10% deposit to book me for a time period, too, so that you know your editing package is on its way and waiting for you.
The best thing to do is book a Discovery Call to tell me all about your novel.
I love discovering new fiction and helping writer’s polish up their work.
Working with Rachel over the last three months has given me many things, but to put it succinctly:
I now have a flashlight to help guide me along the path to publishing whereas before I couldn’t see past my nose, all thanks to her coaching me how to plan.
Rachel’s brainstorming and researching coaching, as well as encouragement, helped me in taking something from initial idea to full concept.
Having someone who is a bit further along the path than me hold space and coach me through my writing concerns meant I felt supported and guided without feeling like an amateur.
The short answer is – I am experienced and qualified. I have spent time training and educating myself to ensure that I have recognised Creative Writing and Coaching qualifications.
I was trained as a Professional Certified Life Coach by the International Coach Federation accredited Certified Life Coach Institute, gained my Creative Writing PhD and MA at the University of Birmingham, and my Creative Writing BA at Bath Spa University. Aside from this, I have undertaken courses that enable me to be the best coach and editor possible.
