“Write drunk, edit sober” – Ernest Hemingway

Editors are the invisible midwives who help deliver manuscripts from the womb of writers locked in creative labour pain. The process of bringing a creative work to life is universally acknowledged to be an erratic roller coaster ride.

Book my editor's proofreading services include correcting your document for:

  • Correction of grammar, spelling, and usage mistakes

    Writers are believed to be the magicians of grammar, in possession of the most accurate word for every context. However, when locked in the flow of writing, it is difficult to follow rules of grammar, or find the right words to convey your message. Our proofreaders are adept at removing all language, spelling, and typographical errors for you. Additionally, all syntactical or semantic incongruities are also fixed – ensuring that erroneous words or sentence constructions do not bring down the brilliance of your creative fruit.

  • Punctuation

    Out of all the factors that contribute to the development of a good manuscript, punctuation is high up on that list. The right punctuation is incredibly important because it determines the manner in which your manuscript is read, received, and processed. Our proofreaders can help you implement the right punctuation in the right places. Additionally, any inconsistencies in terms of quotation marks and the placement of commas in quotes are also tackled skilfully.

  • Relevant Mechanical Consistency

    Keeping a steady point of view and maintaining the right tense consistently are two major challenges faced by writers all across. Our proofreaders are there to ensure that there are no casual slips from first person singular POV to first person plural or third person POV. Additionally, our proofreading ensures that the anchor tense is maintained all throughout the manuscript, with smoothly executed tense shifts as and when the manuscript demands.

  • Referencing and Formatting

    Shall your work require referencing or formatting as per specific guidelines provided to you by your publishing platform, we are more than happy to take care of these requirements for you.

Book my editor's line editing services include correcting your document for:

  • Compelling Writing Style

    The difference between an average book and a good book is the writing style. And that’s precisely why our advanced package places considerable importance on improving how your narrative reads. We accomplish this by taking care of the following:
    Diction Refinement: The correct diction is the difference between “good” and “extra-ordinary”. Readers only get impressed when the story or message is served to them on a plate of well-chosen and cautiously arranged words. We ensure that your thoughts and ideas find the best possible words. We also take care that your diction is consistent throughout the manuscript, uplifting every passage or page where the writing style falls weak.
    Artful Manipulation of Sentence Lengths: Short and long sentences have their own distinct utilities and flavours. Short sentences help create a sense of urgency or increase the impact of each word by concentrating the meaning. Long sentences help improve coherence, provide a flowing rhythm, and serve as a broad canvas for literary devices. Our editors are trained at implementing the right kind of sentences in the right places to improve the writing style of your manuscript.
    Using the Correct Tense aspect: The continuous and perfect tense are vital means to manipulate the flow of time in your work, and make the timeline of your events coherent and clear. Our editors are experts at playing with tenses to award your manuscript maximum coherence and readability.
    Literary Devices: Metaphors, analogies, oxymorons, hyperboles, and the like offer literary flavour to a work. Our editors can help you implement the most exquisite literary devices, such that you have a manuscript that’s written to impress.

  • Redundancy

    When it comes to details, it is only common for writers to lose track of how much is too much. Our editors have the privileged distance from your work to locate and weed out superfluous, repetitive, or unnecessary details. Additionally, we also point out those parts of your manuscript that can be done away with to help you publish a tight impactful work with zero frills.

  • Clarity

    The entire process of creating your manuscript would be moot if your message fails to reach your readers. Our editors tweak and polish your manuscript to ensure that appropriate emotions and reactions are generated in the minds of your readers for the right reasons. We help you craft your manuscript in a manner that provokes your readers to think in the way you intend for them to think.
