I’m Carol Test, an editor who turns ideas into art using craft. Ready to get a novel, memoir, or personal growth manuscript publication-ready?

If so, start with inspiration and self-editing exercises on the BLOG.

When your rough draft is ready for feedback, consider a developmental edit to master story structure in your own voice before line-editing later polishes your book for print. 

Along the way, let this ever-expanding library aid you as you shape the story you were born to share.
