I have had the wonderful opportunity to work with Pauline over the last few months and she has been a pure inspiration. From the beginning she has exuded positivity and has been extremely easy to work and communicate with. I started a project several years ago and up until meeting Pauline, the progress had stopped. I had gathered a lot of information and done a rough draft but there was no direction. Pauline came along and gave me direction and also reignited my passion for what I set out to do. I am striving to tell the story of my ancestor and now that Pauline has come into my life, she has helped to cohesively piece the puzzle together. She helped to edit my existing story and then she also added additional content. Pauline was timely in providing these edits and she has done an excellent job. I love the way the story has turned out thus far. She is truly a gifted writer and makes it easy to understand the process of drafting, editing and completion. And she pours her heart into the job as if it were her own. I highly recommend Paulines creative services.Dec 11, 2014
Pauline was highly recommended to edit my book of poetry that I had just finished. My experience with Pauline was excellent from start to finish. What impressed me the most, was the honest feedback, support, tips, encouragement, and constant communication. Pauline kept me informed every step of the way and finished just as she promised, right on time. I highly recommend Pauline because I got so much more than I can put into words.Dec 1, 2014
She became and Editor. She edited my book. This was the very first writing that I had ever done for publishing. Without her critique and her sitting with me and explaining the importance of my being myself and making sure that I wrote from the point of what I declared my book would be. She shared with me how important of writing down that people would know you from your writing. She met with me in my office. Never was Mrs. Mansfield in a hurry How Long Did It Take: It took 2 weeks and 3 days. What impressed me most of all was Mrs. Mansfields ability to pull out of me that what would had been necessary to enhance my book. Secondly a willing to listen to me read my book. My book and me as a new writer was very important to her. It was not just a job but care and concern. Some of the time spent in my office, especially the length of time just speaking to me about becoming a writer. Many times was over and beyond what I believe many other persons would have done. Her critiques and the work that she performed was over and beyond helping a new writer. The question is what could have been better: Exactly mothing!! What went wrong? If anything? Nothing. What could Pauline Mansfield do better in the future? Continue to share her love and concern for the people in which she helps. Please note: My use of the name YaQar YaQar is because I have 1 name which is legally "YaQar"Dec 1, 2014
