As the saying goes, “Two eyes are better than one.” And that’s exactly what I (when I’ve my editor-dramaturg hat on) am—a second set of eyes, working expressly for you and your script.
I read and I respond. I look at the story logic, at character arcs, at the entire world of your story.
My price? I simply charge $20 per hour, regardless if it’s a play, screenplay, or fiction manuscript.
If interested in discussing how I might be able to assist you and your writing endeavors contact me today HERE.
Few know the first draft of 42 was finished during NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month. In one month, November, I wrote approximately 76,000 words.
Granted, not everyone wishes to do so, but if you’re interested in the challenge contact me HERE and let’s discuss how I can help.
One Month Package: $250
Pre-project Consultation: We discuss the project and the practicality of finishing the project. We discuss motivation. We look at Lifestyle. We create a plan to optimize your time and energy to complete the project. We simply prepare to kick ass.
The Project: You hit the grindstone, while I ensure you stay on task and kicking ass. The “ensuring” is dependent upon you and what type of assistance best supports you and your success. But, for the most part, it looks something like this:
* You write.
* You consult me whenever needed.
* You send pages and I respond.
* You write.
* You write.
* You get it done.
Post-Project Consultation: Now that you’ve finished your project, what’s next? Editing, yes. So, I read the completed manuscript and give notes and ideas. Then we discuss where to submit it. But, more importantly, we discuss how to incorporate what you’ve learned into daily living, so you can continue on kicking ass.
Many find attempting to finish a project in a single month a daunting and impossible task. For those interested in more of a process oriented experience, there are these packages. They contain the same support and perks as the one month, but the timeline is a bit more relaxed, a bit more manageable.
6 Month Package: $225 per month ($1350 total)
One Year Package: $200 per month ($2400 total)
These are just basic options. If you’d like to discuss tailor making a package expressly for you, well, contact me HERE.
