Hand your proposal, article, or full-length book over to me for full editing. My goal in editing your work is to keep your voice, while making the necessary corrections to persuade and amuse the reader. I will pay close attention to all details, correcting misleading phrases and punctuation. I will untwist convoluted sentences, sort out mixed metaphors, put all modifiers in their proper place, and allow no antecedents to be remote. I will make the work logical and readable, without tampering with unusual figures of speech, idiomatic usage, or your own idiosyncratic imagery. You are the author; I am the editor.
