Copy-Editing and/or Proofreading - Scripts and Books

SERVICE DESCRIPTION

Compassionate Book and Screenplay Support

Without a little polish, even the most brilliant ideas and excellent writing can fail to reach full potential.

I have a a great deal of professional experience editing books and screenplays and I love helping fellow and sister writers look their best on paper. I offer light to heavy copy-editing and proofreading for scripts or books (depending on what’s required and desired.)

Clients value my eye as a proofreader as much as copy-editing suggestions that help make their work sing.

Benefits:

Clear and concise read

Clean up embarrassing typos - 2nd pair of eyes

Useful input to big picture of your story

Laurie Lamson

I was honored to share my passion for screenwriting as the host for International Screenwriters' Association‘s free teleconferences for almost four years and I enjoy encouraging and helping my fellow and sister screenwriters take their own projects to the next level.

I've written over 80 produced educational/corporate/promo scripts and worked hard to study and practice the craft of screenwriting.  I've been lucky enough to collaborate with several producers on writing assignments and working with them has definitely deepened my understanding of what makes a great screenplay.  One has been produced - GUITAR MAN won two "Best Drama" festival awards so far.

I've also edited a number of books including anthologies of writing exercises published by Penguin Random House under Tarcher/Perigee imprint: Now Write! Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror and co-editor of Now Write! Screenwriting (co-editor) and Now Write! Mysteries (co-editor.)

WRITE WITH CONFIDENCE AND CLARITY!


Compassionate Story Consultation, Coaching, Editing and Proofreading With Now Write! Editor Laurie Lamson.


IF YOU CAN THINK AND TALK, YOU CAN WRITE.


I don’t believe writing is a rarified skill.  Sometimes the most compelling material comes from ‘untrained’ writers. And professional writers struggle with the same things novices do:

  • finding clarity about your story and what you’re trying to say

  • trusting your own voice

  • allowing yourself to write about uncomfortable subjects

  • connecting with emotions and telling emotional truth

  • fear of criticism and taking it personally

  • keeping momentum going when your inspiration lags

  • knowing or finding out the necessary elements of a great story

  • learning the conventions of your writing area/genre

TAKE YOUR WRITING TO THE NEXT LEVEL.  


What sets professional writers apart is that they courageously grapple with all the above  - without giving up.  They learn to engage their passion and get out of their own way to share their unique gifts through writing.


COMPASSIONATE SUPPORT AND ASSISTANCE.


Working with me, my fellow writers learn to be less critical of their work and open up realms of possibility, develop their voices and become more productive in their writing.  I’ve been honored by how much screenwriters and authors have valued my input, which helped them take their projects to the next level – and to completion.
