What’s developmental advice and is it the same as development editing?


The developmental advice I provide is like a light-touch developmental edit providing suggestions to get your plot, characterisation and story back on track. The services of a developmental editor are sometimes beyond the financial means of a writer. I try and offer a pared-back version of what a developmental editor does by providing constructive commentary on the aspects of your story that could be refined.

As a writer, I have a good understanding of the mechanics of storytelling and can provide solutions to narrative problems that are in keeping with your tone of voice and writing style.
