Why We Do What We Do
A piece of writing is like a crude piece of carbon. It reforms and shines like a diamond only after subjecting it to intense scrutiny and polishing. This is hard work and often the most difficult phase in the journey of writing. Most writers dread having to do it. But this is essential.
However, every writer is emotional and quite subjective when it comes to his or her own baby - the written work. It is hard for you to see through its flaws and damp areas more than it is for a third person because of this emotional attachment to your work. But it is nobody's fault. Rather, it is exactly what makes your work endearing to the reader.
Nevertheless, sending it out to the world in its rawest, unrefined form would be naive. As writers, you are constantly growing and expanding yourself, and chances are you will cringe at that work you carelessly sent into the hands of your readers at some point of time. Believe us when we say that is a very unsettling moment to go through. We have been there and it stings!
When you create a piece of art you want people to enjoy, you want them to be kind to your baby. The least you can do to hope for that is to make your art enjoyable, smoother and as perfect as it can be. The process of reading a piece of writing is in itself a brain-taxing work and we have to make it as subtle and easy as possible. We don't want our readers to dodge 'plot-holes', skip lines and pages, get irritated by carelessly scattered punctuation and or do the tiring job of an editor at the end of the day when they are looking forward to unwind with a bedtime read.
We need them to enjoy the process of reading. Likewise, we want you to enjoy the process of writing without worrying about any of these. It is not enough to write well to have a happy reader. It takes a little more than just writing it down. It takes a different part of the brain altogether to make it right, which is why you cannot do both at the same time. And sometimes, never.
That is where editors, proofreaders and beta readers come in - when it is time to look at your work objectively. We make the art of perfecting easier. Here's what it looks like:
Analyze and evaluate your writing objectively to find its readability, plausibility and artistic elements.
Look for errors, big and small: in spelling, grammar, punctuation and presentation.
Suggest improvements and solutions to problems in the writing.
Help with detailing where the narrative needs to be more descriptive and longer.
Condense, restructure and rephrase verbose sentences and paragraphs to shorter, neater and crisper narratives.
Provide developmental mentoring for potential ideas.
Craft beautiful e-books and e-book covers for your book and assist in the technical processes of setting up, uploading and publishing your Kindle e-book on Amazon worldwide, if you are into Kindle publishing and don't wish to go through the tortuous journey of print publishing.
Guide and assist authors who need help with setting up their profiles on various platforms like GoodReads, Amazon Author Central, etc.
