Once you have written your first draft, you know you are not done. You understand that you need to fix everything from plot holes to punctuation. The starting point is Macro-Editing - Editing the Big Picture. Many spend $1000s on Book Doctors, Finishers, and Developmental Editors to do this work for them. Unfortunately, they are not YOU. Fixing your plot is very different than catching punctuation errors. Your plot is an expression of your own creativity and vision for the story. Too often, developmental editors encourage a vision quite different from yours.

YOU ARE THE BEST PERSON TO EDIT THE BIG PICTURE ISSUES IN YOUR BOOK. YOU JUST NEED TO KNOW HOW.

This two-week course teaches you what you need to know to be your own book doctor.
