10 People. 20 Pages. Deep Developmental Edits.
Editing your manuscript to get it ready for an agent or editor requires more than just crossing the T’s and dotting the I’s.
Developmental editing is the first stage in preparing your manuscript for professional eyes. It helps you to build complex characters, checks that your pacing is not boring the reader, and makes sure you’ve plugged all those pesky plot holes.
In Dazzling Developmental edits, you will work one-on-one with a professional editor who will help you learn the difference between a developmental edit and a copy edit, how to accept criticism when it stings, and learn what to expect from your very first developmental edit.
