There’s more to a good story than perfect edits. You want your characters to be memorable and engage in compelling dialogue. Most professional writers strive to avoid the passive voice whenever possible, and the more vivid the language, the better.

Still, when all is said and done, how do you know when you’re done editing and ready to publish?

The Sentence Shop will help you through all the phases of your writing, from prewriting to the first draft up through revising, modifying your ideas, applying grammar, choosing proper usage, mechanics, and more.

I’m here for the second round of edits, too. Or maybe you want some guidelines or advice on proper syntax, semantics, transitional phrases, figurative language, and all the nuts and bolts that, when fine-tuned, can mean the difference between writing that’s good and excellent.
