My first screenplay, One of the Boys, placed in the top ten percent of The 2016 Nichols Awards, the quarter-finals of the 2016 Final Draft Screenwriting Competition, and the Finals (i.e. my script was in the final 10 in drama out of 7,000) in the 2016 Page International Screenwriting Competiton. And it’s based on a true story, which is a chapter in my memoir.
As you can tell from my careless grammar and spelling mistakes, I’m not a copy-editor. But I am excellent at story—character development, story arcs, infusing humor, etc. I give brutally honest feedback, but having someone do that for me is what made my shit good. Since October I’ve story edited two novels and I just love doing it. It’s fun for me to throw myself into someone else’s stories instead of my own. If you need a critical eye to look at your book or screenplay or you need someone to help you hash out story beats (and kill your darlings) before you jump right in, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
