Changing your Writing World

Developmental Editing with Rhay Christou


In stock



The forest of your story is as important as the individual trees, but sometimes we get so focused on a line, a word, a sentence, we don’t take the time to see the overall picture we’re creating.

With developmental editing, we focus on the forest -- the overall development of plot on both the scene level and whole level, the characters that populate your pages, and if they truly grow and change, as well as forward motion, cause and effect, story development from beginning to end of pages submitted. Whether a partial or a full manuscript, writers will received detailed information regarding the development of character, setting, plot, goals, motivation, conflict and character growth.  Each response includes a detailed developmental editing letter focusing on what is working, areas that the writer might want to delve deeper, as well as specific notes in scene/chapter wrap ups, inline comments.

Price:   $5.50 /250 word page - sold in sets of 10 pages.
