A developmental edit is an in-depth edit of an entire manuscript, short story, or article. I look into all elements of your writing, including overall structure and style, individual words and phrases, possible problematic characterization, and possible plot holes or gaps. This is to prepare your work to meet industry standards and will preserve your voice and target audience.
