Hello! So I am looking for editorial help, of sorts, but not to fix spelling and grammar errors. I need help freshening up my word choices a bit. I main strength as a writer is dialogue. I love writing dialogue and (not to toot my own horn) but I'm pretty decent at it. It's the other parts that I struggle with. The narration. The body language. The action words. I'm not bad at those parts, but to be honest my vocabulary tends to be limited and I'm not very good at coming up with new and refreshing ways to word things. And because of this I tend to repeat the same boring phrases a lot. I don't want to do this! So again, I don't need mistakes fixed, I just need word/phrasing suggestions/improvements. I'd love it if you were a bit of a writer yourself, but it's not a necessity. And I'd love it if you have at least some editing experience as well, but again, not entirely necessary. I only ask that you have a way with words. Sorry this took so long to explain. A little about myself, I have published two novels already, one of them has been fairly successful so far, and new one that I'm asking for help with will be my first collection of short stories. They are all romantic in nature to a certain degree. They are small, personal moments in characters lives. Lonely people trying to make meaningful connections with others, stuff like that. Most of them are pretty short, but all together the document is 35,000 words. But I'm not necessary looking to hire someone for the full book right off the bat. I'd be open to hiring you for a couple stories first (some only being a page or two in length) to see how comparable we are for this job and if your changes meet my needs. Thank you! I look forward to hearing from you. Also, I have attached a very small sample of the opening of one of the stories, just to give you a better idea of my writing style so you know what you'd be working with.

Hi. If dialogue writing is your forte, then improvisation is mine! I excel at sprucing things up, making the narrative more engaging without necessarily making it too wordy. I'll charge $5/1000 words.
See my story Stardust as an example of my work. I can easily help with this since I love to read. I have a long experience with that kind of stuff myself. Any questions let's speak over chat.
Hello, I read through your project description and I understand perfectly what you need. I am also a writer and I can assure you that you'll definitely get the resultant effect you desire in your work, if you use me.
