Substantive Editing

This is a really useful process for when you're right in the middle of a project, feeling like you're in over your head with options and possibilities and maybe have forgotten what's central to your story - why it needs to get made. I will read what you've got so far, make my own notes, then we have an hour-long conversation in which I use questions and feedback to help you find concrete steps forward and a sharper sense of direction. Afterwards, I will type up the most important things from our conversation and my own reading, and send it all to you. Things we may discuss include: plot strength and continuity, deconstruction of craft, abstract analysis, symbolism, production and marketing considerations, and more.
