Editing is of utmost importance. I have also started a web page with Weebly. Trying to find as much time as I can to work on that.

I am an editor as well as a writer, and I would be interested in helping edit/proof anyone's work. Editing is an absolutely critical part of the writing process. You can find out more about me and see samples at www.bumbershootwriting.com.

Thus is absolutely true. I proofread each of my manuscripts in excess of 7-8 times all the way through. I still find slight spelling, grammatical, or clarity issues. An editor - one you trust to appreciate your writing style and voice, but at the same time to be tough and constructively critical - is essential for a serious writer.

I work as a script doctor and manuscript editor. I have helped over a hundred fellow writers since 1999.

Ok thanks Wolfgang. Will be searching for an editor!

Comment by H. Wolfgang Porter on September 2, 2016 at 9:13pm

Crystal, you definitely need to get an editor or at the minimum a good proofreader. There's no way you'll catch everything 'cause you're too close to the work. Even when you set it down for a while and come back to it, you'll catch some things but stuff will slip by. An editor's job is to catch stuff and ask questions as to whether you 'mean what you say' on the page and offer suggestions to 'say it' in a manner that will be more succinct to readers.

Thank you Patricia and H. Wolfgang!

You I have some beta readers. At this point I don't have an editor since I am self-publishing... I had to leave a writer's critique group because of how they critiqued. 

I will stick with beta readers (and pouring over my work several times) One of them is my closest friend who can be brutally honest. lol.  I feel blessed about that.

Once again thank you!

Comment by Patricia L Graham on September 2, 2016 at 6:06am

I get what Wolfgang says completely, having come across some really out there and wild comments on writing sites from people who hadn't read my narrative 'cept under some influence on spec - given I knew what happened and what hadn't in my shared extract.  However, to be fair, I have come across editors worth their weight who helped to transform someone's work to the utmost.  Obviously can be applied or a gift.  Luck of the draw and you need to grow a thick skin and keep your sense of humour ...

Comment by H. Wolfgang Porter on September 2, 2016 at 2:17am

Crystal, usually your editor and beta readers will do that for you. It's a risk getting someone who critiques as a service. You can't be certain how honest their assessment is and if they wild out on your work you paid them to do so.

Comment by Crystal Skye on August 31, 2016 at 1:15pm

Is there a service where I can have someone critic my work before publishing?

Thank you!  I have a short story I would like critiqued.

This image shows the NIST logo made from glowing nanowire LEDs. While the color of the nanowires in the image looks blue, they are actually emitting in the ultraviolet with a wavelength of approximately 380 nm. The other two images, from a scanning electron microscope, show the overall structure of the nanowires.

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
