Line editing focuses on fully developing your voice and telling the story in a tone that you choose. It ensures that each sentence is as effective as it can be. I examine each sentence and make edits (typically using using Track Changes) to build up your intended mood and ensure a consistent tone throughout your story. I also focus on the presentation of ideas and themes, and I may shift portions/paragraphs of text to enhance clarity.
Similar to copy editing, this service addresses awkward phrasing, overused words, spelling, grammar, and punctuation, but also prioritizes examining sentence flow to cultivate your unique writing personality. Line editing helps improve your audience’s understanding. Above all, I work to preserve and polish your specific vision for the story.
