What began as a journal entry turned into a blog post. A reader of the series exclaimed, “This would make a great book!”
The journal you’ve poured your heart and soul into now rests on the surface next to your computer. You review its content and fill the blank document on the monitor. Your story, filled with insightful pearls of wisdom, form sentences and transform paragraphs.
Then questions start to swirl like vultures and loom in dark craves of your mind asking, Now what?
Writers know they are too close to their story and unable to see the forest through the trees. Valuable details are unintentionally left out of the content, because, in the writer’s mind, they relive the event over and over. It is familiar terrain. For the audience, it will be their first experience in the shared moment. They yearn to be drawn into the storyline, witness the events as they play out, and observe the characters’ environment.
Cindy possess the natural ability to listen to the written voice weaved throughout the storyline and can guide you, the author, to express the unspoken voice. This is the key element to a developmental editor.
