Early last month, I wrote a post about signing a contract with a client to do my first manuscript assessment.
Anyway, it went well!
I’m really pleased with this testimonial.
Honestly, even though it was my first one, I didn’t find it a difficult task. It took me a while, yes, as I was overthinking everything, but it wasn’t hard. (Don’t worry – I didn’t charge by the hour!)
What was brilliant about it was that it was a proper synthesis of various skills I have built up over the years. Skills I’ve developed through formal education such as my academic studies in literature, as well as the training courses I’ve done with the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading. Plus the years of teaching both language and literature. But above all else, all of the reading and considering I’ve done.
LOVED it! More please.
Contact me if you’d like a manuscript assessment.
This comes earlier in the process than an edit. If you’re deliberating whether your manuscript ‘has legs’, this might be the service for you.
I’m still offering line editing, copy editing and proofreading, but this is a service so new it’s not even here on my website yet! Watch this space.
