Why Line Editing matters
The reward a reader gets out of reading a sentence must be greater than the effort they put in to read it.
Poorly constructed prose can lead to DNFs (Did Not Finish reviews) and disappointing book sales.
If you want to keep readers engaged in your story, you must keep your words and phrases simple.
But "simple" doesn't have to mean "boring".
The Elev8 Technique will step you through how to line edit strategically without sacrificing your style.
How it's different from Copyediting
Many writers confuse line editing and copyediting. So what's the difference?
And how do you know what to edit when?
Learn the purpose for each type of editing in this free training video.
And find out whether you should combine them into a single editing phase or invest in separate, dedicated editing passes.
The Elev8 Technique demystifies what decisions you need to make when.
The technique that will elevate your prose
I developed the Elev8 Technique to make my job as a professional editor easier because I need to be able to make quick decisions without second-guessing my edits.
Being able to make your edits with confidence will save you hours on even a single manuscript. And that's a skill every writer should know.
So I'm sharing the framework of my Elev8 Technique and everything you need to know to get started line editing your own work.
Stop agonizing over insignificant choices and learn to line edit with purpose.
Learn to transform your rambling, drafty words
into concise, compelling prose.
Don't skip this free training if you...
[This technique] gives me
a feeling of control.
