It's our Writing Coach Service! It's a pretty individualized and personal package. It's perfect for those who need or want editing on several drafts of a work.
Are you struggling with your novel? Not sure what to do or how to get to from first draft to final draft? Or maybe you need someone on your side, giving you much needed pep talks along the way. That’s what a writing coach is for—and the team at Wild Things Editing will provide it and more.
As your writing coach, we can also help keep you accountable. Have you been working on your manuscript for a year? Two years? Ten years? Do you want to get it done with already? We’re here to help. If you want it, we’ll give you deadlines for each edits to motivate you to finally finish your novel so it can go out into the world.
Whether you are a novice novelist or a veteran querier wanting to finally find that project that will get agents and editors to scream yes, our writing coach service can help you.
WRITING COACH SERVICE
We give all our clients the same experience. There’s no basic, premium or platinum levels—only one completely devoted service and rate. With our writing coach service we will read over your manuscript a total of three times (full—from start to finish). We’ll help you take your manuscript from first draft to final product. Each critique level is different depending on the manuscript.
For first (or early) drafts we will give you a comprehensive reader report—the same sort of reports editorial assistants and literary agent interns give to their bosses’ after reading manuscripts. In the reader report we will break down what works and what doesn’t, as well as give helpful tips on how to fix it. We will also break down it’s current marketability in the marketplace (be it indie or traditional).
For second drafts we will go into more depth, giving a thorough editorial critique where we include a detailed editorial note along with some line editing throughout the manuscript.
For final drafts we will do a full line edit critique where we break everything done, once again, into an editorial critique but also do an extensive line edit in order to help you polish your project into perfection.
Between each edit, we will always be available to answer questions via email. But our writing service takes it a step further—after every critique we will also schedule a 30 minute Skype chat so we can discuss the edits and manuscript in depth.
QUERY & SYNOPSIS
If you plan to go the traditional route, we will also help you craft the perfect query and synopsis along the way.
