About this pro
I had written a short story that I thought needed a simple edit. I gave it to Caryn, who gave me so much more. She not only helped with the grammar and spelling but with plot, characters, and pacing. I'd never come across a "writing coach" before. When I asked why she took so much of her time to help me, she replied, "Would I let you put anything but your best out there for the world to see?" This response has been the underpinning of our professional relationship and subsequent friendship. I realised she was training me to write better than I ever dreamed possible, and her editing gave my work its vital polish. I am as proud of this little story as of anything I've ever done, thanks to her. She is a professional in the highest sense. Now,I'm working on an original novel and would never dream of having anyone else edit. Being edited is never easy - she gives tough love and nothing escapes her scrutiny - but I'm in it with her for life. Once she gives my work her stamp of approval, I feel confident in submitting it to a publisher, knowing they will see it at its best."Sep 24, 2013
I've found Caryn to be an excellent editor and proofreader. Not only does she fix any and all grammar errors, but she's also invaluable when it come to plotting and character consistencies. I can't recommend her highly enough. I wouldn't dream of publishing anything without first getting her expert opinion.Sep 20, 2013
- What types of customers have you worked with?Almost anything having to do with editing. I have mainly edited full manuscripts and helped authors greatly improve their work. They all inform me their writing went up a level after working with me.
