I dont edit for writers, but with writers. Yes, Ill make changes and comments and suggestions and omissions and give you my educated opinions, but writing is a communal activity. It exists in an interactive space, a place where a writer can explore all types of creativity.
My job as your editor is to guide and shape your writing, to bolster whats working and encourage itand youto keep going. You write. I observe, engage, and respond. Then together we comb out the tangles and add in some conditionerbecause thats what working with me as your editor will be like: well smooth out the rough drafts, give it all a solid foundation so then the story can continue to grow.
General edits and line edits.
Tell Chelsey what you want to work on, and she'll choose a book that she thinks would be helpful in accordance to your wants/needs, and will read the book with you. She will assign weekly lessons and questions about different craft aspects in the book, as well as writing exercises. Each week, the writer emails Chelsey a piece of writing under 2000 words (either a single piece of writing or a selection of smaller pieces), and she'll do those hardcore edits. The amount of writing you send to Chelsey is up to you. Some people like to get comments on the writing exercises provided to them. Some like to submit the latest version of a piece she/he/ze is working on. Either of these options--or any other ones you might come up with--are fine. The focus here is on your writing. Chelsey will accommodate for and support all of the ways in which you want to learn and work.
