Heather Hewer convinced me to edit it myself and it really helped me be a better writer, I’m convinced of that.

– Andrew C

Andrew approached me with a request to proofread his novel, slated for self-publishing. I reviewed his sample chapter but quickly determined that the scope of the project went beyond a simple, objective proofread or copyedit.

I felt three things:

  • Spelling, punctuation and grammar weren’t the problem
  • Overall it needed a substantive, subjective edit
  • Best accomplished by the writer himself

Instead of fiendishly upping my prices per word, I wrote a long, gentle email filled with feedback, suggestions and encouragement. I attached the sample chapter with my tracked changes to give him a starting point.

A risk? Definitely. I’m a writer too – I know how tough it is out there. This felt a bit like picking up a piece of lit dynamite. I’m glad he’s happy, and I couldn’t be more thrilled with his praise.
