The Developmental Edit offers an in-depth evaluation of your manuscript's big picture components.
Anna Vera has focused specifically on honing her knowledge of craft so that you don't have to. Unfamiliar with the best approach to plot structure, literary devices, and creating compelling, dimensional characters? Afraid
of committing the sin of deus ex machina or other literary faux pas? Fear not! We've got you covered.
The Developmental Edit applies a metaphorical magnifying glass to your story. Together, we'll work through multiple read-throughs, in-text adjustments, and Track Changes to guide your story toward its
fullest potential. You will also receive a 10 to 50 page Edit Letter discussing
where your story stands in relation to the following:
— CONFLICT & TENSION —
— POINT OF VIEW —
— TENSE —
— SYMBOLISM —
— PLOT & PACING —
— SCENE STRUCTURE —
— THEMATIC REVELATION —
— VOICE, NARRATIVE STYLE, PERSONA —
— PLOT POINT (MIS)PLACEMENT —
— CHARACTER ARC EXECUTION—
— CHARACTER —
The Writerverse's Developmental Editing Package includes a preliminary read-through to determine whether or not
this level of editing is appropriate for your manuscript. If you're further ahead than you think you are,
YOU WILL NOT BE CHARGED FOR THIS FULL PACKAGE.
It is an editor's ethical responsibility to tailor their services according to whatever the manuscript
in question demands. If we determine your manuscript would benefit more from a different
stage in the editing process, you will be informed immediately.
In our experience, it's challenging for an author to objectively pinpoint exactly where their manuscript stands in the editing process, but don't stress! We're here to help!
