Patricia has an eye for detail and an unyielding dedication to quality. She edits at the paragraph, sentence, clause, and syllable level. She gives the same attention to the end notes as she does to the headline. At the same time, she can take the 30,000-foot view of a piece of writing, taking into account purpose and audience to ensure it has the biggest possible impact.
Patricia has been my job search coach for years, I try to never submit a job application without the benefit of her eagle eye. She spots obvious "resume killers" like typos and grammar errors. She also excels at the more nuanced issues of passive language and punching up writing to make it stand out. Patricia listens to ensure she has a deep and clear understanding of what the writer is trying to accomplish. She applies that knowledge to create attention-grabbing cover letters, resumes, and writing samples.
Patricia has an incredible ability to see the forest AND the trees—at the same time. She’ll point out all those little continuity errors that inevitably pop up in a long manuscript. She’ll also let you know how your themes successfully develop (or don’t) over an entire plot arc. She can tell you if you’re using commas wrong, identify your writing ticks, remind you that your Aunt Edith in Chapter 12 was your Aunt Evelyn in chapter 2, and do so in a way that inspires you to write more and better. Just hire her!
