Editing is war.

Surveillance: A Developmental Edit

A great warrior doesn’t run into battle blindly. They gather as much information as possible. Learn their enemies’ weaknesses and strengths, as well as their own.

The first step in a successful edit is a developmental edit. We look for strengths to emphasize: great voice, strong dialogue and characters, underlying themes. We look for weaknesses: neglected plot threads, misunderstood character motivations, confusion. Then I’ll write a reconnaissance report, and we’ll schedule a call to discuss your plan of attack.
