NOVEL AND SCRIPT EDITING
About this pro
Tour der Force! A service of epic proportions! Words cannot fully describe the sense of accomplishment and achievement! David helped me take my story and massage and kneed it into a full blown screenplay. I could not have done it with out him. The patience, the knowledge and his experience not only made this soul searching exercise enjoyable, but a crowning life achievement. David was persistent in helping me get to my truth and turn it into a dramatic story for everyone to enjoy. I laughed and I cried. Thank you David Madsen, we did it!May 16, 2018
I provided a draft of my mystery and was provided great feedback on the plot, characters and structure. In addition, he gave me some great story ideas that will definitely improve my novel. If you are looking for developmental editing, I highly recommend David.May 10, 2018Verified
I have been working with David on my revisions for my novel for over a year and he’s attention to detail never ceases to amaze me. He’s the best I’ve worked with on this marathon journey I’ve been on. David helps me stay focused, knows when I need a dose of honesty and when it’s time to cheer me on. But most of all he knows his craft and has been an invaluable partner.May 10, 2018
The feedback I received from David on my first script was so helpful and constructive that I connected with him immediately on my second. David is a great writing coach. He demonstrates an exceptional feel for story and character elements, particularly elements that provide drama and depth to the writing. David always know how to take something that one step further and make it that much better. In addition to strong written critiques, David's great with real time creative interaction. It's been fun to discuss creative options as well as generate new directions in our phone calls. I also appreciate his ability to say what needs to be said about the work while balancing that with a strong dose of encouragement.Apr 16, 2018
