To All Writers: Rewrite Please!

Dear Reader,

This is my last post for today. I want to leave you with this advice- again:

Your first draft, whether it be a novel or script, is not your perfect final draft. You have to do a lot of rewriting to get the story right. When you pay for a critique take the advice in it. For every scene in a script or chapter in a book, don't be satisfied with what you've written. Think to yourself, "How can I make this more compelling."

Are you writing a Short Story?  Now  I offer service for Short story writers as for the other services, the fees are flat.

( If you are not able to pay in full, the payment for any service can be made on installment - divided in half. If you would like to use my service, let me know whether you need  to pay on installment or can pay in full. I am willing to be flexible.)

Some people request edits and critiques together. If a writer wants both, to me this says the writer is not completely confident his or her script is ready. So I  recommend getting the critique first. Use the critique to redo the script. Once the script is just right, then request the edit.

However, there are script, screenplay, writers who insist on having both an edit and critique together.  So I offer an edit and critique combo at discount.

Edit &Critique Combo Discount: $66.00   This is a discount savings of $40.00

All payments are received by Paypal. If you cannot make Paypal payments you may mail payments in the form of cashier checks or money orders. NO personal checks
