The act of writing is baring your soul. Words flow from heart to hand and onto the pages. There are no tricks of the trade. No gimmicks. Just you and your favorite writing apparatus. You write.
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.
I 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.
