“. . . Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.”
Everyday it seems I’m climbing a mountain against my will. I stand at the foot of my mountain of trouble wondering if I’ll ever make it to the top. Just when I get my footing, I slip on razor sharp words that rip me in two. Breathless, I continue my climb only to fall onto a past I thought I had left behind. In terrible agony, I drench in self-pity, convinced I’ll never know God’s love.
During my treacherous climb, I failed to realize God is with me every step of the way. I can’t see him. Sometimes, I can’t feel him. But he’s there. “For your ways are in full view of the Lord, and he examines all your paths.” (Proverbs 5:21)
Prayer: Lord, no matter what my circumstance, help me see your glory.
Think: How did God bring you out of your troubles? When did you notice his presence?
Read: Hebrews 4:12-13; II Corinthians 4:16-18
With millions of new indie writers coming to the forefront, it’s not often they go through that last processing stage. As readers, you know how important it is to read what you wrote and write what you mean. We become so complacent at times that we don’t proof our e-mail messages before we send them out, leaving many recipients scrambling for a clearer understanding. Another thing that keeps writers from going that extra mile is money. Hiring an editor is too expensive. But after you hit the publish button and you’ve read your masterpiece for what you hope is the last time before you move on to your next novel, you cringe and wish you had paid those extra dollars to have your story edited.
Alex McGilvery can help you represent yourself well through the written word. McGilvery has been an editor and writer for over a decade. He’s reasonable. That’s putting it mildly. I can’t say that I know of any other editor who charges $300 for 100K words. Do you? He’s offered to look at the first 5,000 words of your story and edit them for free with no obligation. Now, you have to admit, that’s worth a try. Below is Alex’s contact information.
If you use Alex and he works out for you, please send me word.
I’ve been a reader, writer, and reviewer for decades and now I’m editing books. I work to make the writer’s voice shine through their story. I’ve never read a story I couldn’t edit.
If you’re not sure, send me the first 5,000 words of your book and I will edit them for free. No obligation.
Only if you like what you see, do you need to pay the fee and send me the rest of the novel.
I enjoy mentoring writers as much as writing myself. For content and structural editing, I charge $300 for 100k words in order to keep my work accessible to writers at all stages of their careers.
