Editors are snipers. Trust me, I've been one for years. We're all buried in work and we all look for any excuse to whittle down the pile.
Don't make it easy for editors to weed you out. Send them clean, error-free copy that's relevant to the publication and you will become what every editor really wants -- a writer worth publishing.
If you ...
- are working on an article for print or online publication,
- have written poems, short stories, or essays that you'd like to submit to a publication, or
- are looking to start shopping a completed manuscript to literary agents
... then you should strongly consider hiring someone to make sure your work is free of grammatical mistakes. And who better than a real-life editor who knows what to look for?
You're a great writer. A master of the written word. But you will still make mistakes. And nothing screams "careless writer" louder than little mistakes and inconsistencies.
Don't let a missing "of" or a double-period ruin an otherwise great manuscript. Get yourself another pair of eyes to review your work – a professional pair of eyes that hunts grammatical mistakes like prey.
WriteHook's Proofreading Services zero in on the mechanics of written language. These services include:
- Grammatical errors and inconsistencies (plurals, gender, etc.)
- Typographical and spelling errors
- Run-on sentences and sentence fragments
- Punctuation (apostrophes, commas, etc.)
- Subject-verb agreement and consistent tense
Grammatical mistakes are one thing. But there is more to a manuscript than technical perfection. Considering the work you've put into it, you want your story to be readable, engaging, and compelling.
