Editor

Writing a story takes an idea and the discipline to put it down on paper. Passion can drive a story from beginning to end. Editors are in the world to help share that passion with eager readers. Every story has a reader ready to turn its pages. It is the editor who helps you refine your story - bring its full potential to light.

Development

Every writer can benefit from the careful eye of a dedicated editor. For those bits and pieces of your story that didn't flow the way others did and for those sections of narrative that you love so much, but don't quite fit, is where I dig in. This is what I love and where my knowledge of specific genres can get you through those creative speed bumps.



The Nitty Gritty

Sentence structure, typos, commas, subject-verb agreement - these are all elements of writing that can go unnoticed, as incorrect, by any writer. All manuscripts can benefit from a copy edit, if only to correct the mistakes that can slip through any author's reading.

Writer

There is inspiration everywhere. There is not time in the day to write it all. Taking those ideas and developing a story, now that can be quite tricky. I have dabbled in writing and dream of expanding that repertoire. For now, I write when I can, and I continue to work on those tales that will never leave me

Pop culture Essays

I love pop culture. The crossover and re-circulation of ideas is what solidifies the themes we see over and over again. This passion carries over from my days working toward my English degree. Click the link to read a couple essays.

Short Stories

Flash-in-the-pan ideas manifest best as short stories. I formulated my long-form works from short stories. I challenged myself to one-story a week years back; it was hard to keep on, but a great adventure. Click the link to see how far that project got.

Novels

NaNoWriMo was my inspiration for writing a long-form piece. I finished in 2013 and 2014, but my endeavors in 2015 went unfinished. And for 2016, well, I opted to learn about editing. I will still publish these pieces, someday. Click the link to read one of my favorite short stories that inspired my 2013 NaNoWriMo piece.
