About This Gig

Are you trying to edit a short story or novella for publication? Would you like a second opinion on your writing? Do you want someone to honestly critique your work and tell you how you can improve it? Well, my name is Megan and I'm here to help you. I have a BA in Creative Writing and I can help you improve the structure and tone of your writing.

I provide:
  • a thorough critique of your writing's narrative structure (the plot and story)
  • a tonal consistency check
  • suggestions on characterization, where it relates to the above*

I do not provide:
  • Niceness. You are paying me to critique your work and I will critique it.
  • Copyediting. If you would like me to check your spelling and grammar, please select either the premium package or the copyediting extra.

* Essentially, I'm not here to judge your characters but if I feel that their characterization is inconsistent with the tone or the plot, I will point it out and suggest how to fix the problem.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why is your turnaround so long?
    It's not, exactly. I have a different schedule from most people so if you send me something at 11AM PST I probably won't see it until at least 5PM PST, because I won't even be awake yet. Basically, my turnaround has built-in delay to accommodate my schedule.
  • What kind of fiction will you critique?
    Anything. However, I'm most familiar with the mystery/thriller, fantasy/paranormal, and science fiction genres in both the young adult and adult categories.
  • Will you critique erotica?
    Sure. However, the "sexiness" of erotica is subjective so the critiques won't be related to that most of the time.
