Express complex ideas with precision and elegance.
As a former academic, I know how easy it can be to get used to a certain way of thinking and talking about something – and as an editor, I know how difficult it can be for a reader to follow along.
My job is to come to your text with a fresh perspective, and to help you say things in a way your reader will understand.
Your readers want to immerse themselves in your ideas – as if they are standing in a stream and your words are like water, just flowing by.
But in order for that to happen, we have to remove the jargon and simplify overly complex sentences. I suggest transitions and headings that help the reader see where you are going.
With a second perspective, suggestions, and revisions, your thinking gets sharper, too.
