I have spent most of the day putting in a comma, and the rest of the day taking it out.
— Oscar Wilde

I relate wholeheartedly to that quote above because I really believe that every little detail in writing matters. The smallest comma or the 'not-quite-right' word can change the meaning of what you're trying to say.  For that reason, I am thorough in critiquing my own work and the work of others.  If you'd like someone to go through your manuscript and find those little things that make that difference, along with a complete assessment and valuable feedback of your manuscript, contact me to discuss your project.
