After the editing documents are returned to you, I want to make sure that you’re ready to dive into the revision of your manuscript. To that end, I welcome discussion over email or telephone. We can brainstorm about solutions, chat about specific suggestions, and talk more generally about how you will proceed from here.
Everyone’s revision process is different. Some benefit from extra inspiration like strolls through museums or a trip to a spot pivotal to the project. Others work best keeping a quiet routine. Similarly, some writers benefit from active communication with me, exchanging pages every month or two, while others find it best to work through an entire draft before sending it along.
I make it a priority to work each writer’s individual needs into my work schedule. This explains why my editing calendar can get scheduled well in advance, as active clients with revisions are given consultation time within a week or two, rather than being sent to the back of the waiting line. While a new client may have to wait a month or two for an edit, that same writer benefits from the working relationship once established.
