Story Editing

Story editing, previously known as structural or developmental editing, takes an in-depth look at an entire manuscript with a focus on characters, plot, and settings.

Comprehensive, Objective Story Edits

Help writers tell powerful stories by understanding what great stories are made of using the enlightening visuals and the 38 Fictionary Story Elements.

StoryCoach ensures you "fully" evaluate the story without personal biases coming into play. You'll become an exceptional editor.

Track Changes, Comments, and Notes

Track every change and make inline comments while seeing the story structure. Provide scene-by-scene editorial notes for those high-level comments that guide the writer in improving their story.

Then invite clients to review comments and changes with access to their manuscript from their own Fictionary account.

Simplified Client Management

Bring all your editing work together in one easy-to-use client dashboard.

Ideal for working with multiple clients, editing a book series, or multiple manuscripts from the same author.
