This is a combination of developmental editing and line editing. The parameters will vary depending on genre but tend to work with the “wider” structural elements of your writing. This can include character development, story arcs, plot holes, dialogue, narrative flow, consistent and appropriate tone, idea development, organization, and argument. We will also help to smooth rough prose and choppy transitions.
