Master Manuscript Editor
"The great oak's destiny is written in a tiny acorn." – James Hillman. Of Greek origin ('telos'), it is the inherent directing force within a word; within the acorn to become an oak tree; within the caterpiller to become a butterfly.
The entelechÄ“ breathes life into descriptions and experiences the author creates in each genre. As the ultimate end, it clarifies and heightens the writer's perceptions of dreams, concepts, and feelings.
It gives depth to the essence of the message the author endeavors to convey to the reader.
As manuscript editor, which also includes videos, webcasts, webinars, teleseminars, internet ads, and so on, I am about enhancing the writer's underlying ideas—not only through correct grammar, spelling, and usage, but through understanding what is really wanted so I can help achieve that.
My work is primarily accomplished through Microsoft Word.
Because I honor that place within each writer from which the creative expression is birthed, it is my heartfelt intention to do no harm—to keep preferences and style intact while adhering to mechanical conventions.
My goal is to "embed a measure of grace in negotiating" the enteleche of words and perceptions, while keeping in mind that first loyalty is to the audience—the reader.
