Wow, saying they’re spectacular is an understatement.

Every writer has a message, and their story is the messenger. This message is the sum of a writer’s thoughts, ideas and experiences crystalized into one theme. And this theme, when delivered proficiently, can alter the reader’s view of the world.
As a writer, you are powerful and you wield this power through the written word. But to wield this power, you must speak the reader’s language. My job is to assist you in ensuring your story speaks this language. I will use the Fictionary process to provide comprehensive, straightforward, actionable suggestions that showcase the beauty of your voice, so your message is crisp to the reader’s ear.
You can contact me in the Fictionary community. I look forward to serving you!
