Manuscript Editing

With manuscript editing, we:

  • Streamline sentences – cut unnecessary phrases and words – because it is an effective way to speed the pace, therefore creating a more pleasant reading experience.
  • Reorder paragraphs when it makes a narrative more logical.
  • Look at the mechanics of dialogue.  Is it attributed properly?


Manuscript Editing Reviews
“Special thanks to Molly McKitterick at “The Word Process” who took the red pen to this story and gave valuable suggestions that made it better.” Christopher Cushing, The Deception of Sharmok, The Glowing Ember Series    
Linda helped me cut the fat from my first novel and provided some outstanding suggestions and insight on the second and the third as well. I always seek her help when I’m stuck. Her rates are reasonable and her advice is well worth the investment, especially if you’re serious about getting published.” Andrew Britton, The American, The Invisible, and The Assassin
“I arrived with a manuscript that was 30 percent over my contractual word limit and complicated enormously by my goal of balancing the economic politics and personalities in the life of the man who ran the Federal Reserve System longer than Allan Greenspan. The Word Process helped me cut, sequence, and negotiate through all the details.”  Bob Bremner: Chairman of the Fed: William McChesney Martin Jr. and the Creation of the Modern American Financial System
