Welcome, fabulous romance writer!

Story Doctoring is a program designed to highlight existing developmental issues with your story. It’s a more comprehensive, intensive and interactive alternative to a manuscript assessment. Not only will I identify your manuscript’s weaknesses, I’ll also work with you to strengthen its key elements.

How it works:

You’ll share a few key details about the story with me and I’ll diagnose areas of concern and provide feedback on what’s not working and why. You’ll then gain access to your treatment plan — three comprehensive lessons and interactive assignments that will launch you into the revision process — and make your submissions. I’ll provide detailed feedback, giving you further opportunity and guidance to improve your story.

Lessons included:

In my experience, the three main issues with most troublesome manuscripts lie in character development, the main story problem, and the plot’s structure and development, which is why I offer these three core lessons to writers who need guidance in revising their story:

  • Characters in the Hot Seat: dig deeper into the essence of who your protagonist and the love interest are — what drives them, what motivates them, and what obstacles are in their way;
  • Pack a Punch with the Inciting Incident: revisit the inciting incident to ensure it meets five essential criteria and gets your story off to a powerful start;
  • Step Back to See the Bigger Picture: gain an understanding of story structure, implement what you learn to reimagine a stronger story, and produce an outline of the protagonist’s inner journey and the plot’s development to guide you as you write your next draft.
