Can you relate to any of this?
You've sent your manuscript to agents only to be turned down with no clear feedback, or you've self-published your novel, but you feel like you should have done more.
You've applied for programs like Pitch Wars and Author Mentor Match, but you weren't selected.
You get that self-editing is important, but don't see how to actually do it in a way that improves your writing.
You always feel you should do more while at the same time wondering if it's worth continuing—what if all this is a waste of time?
You feel like hiding whenever friends or family members ask you how the writing is going because you lack confidence in your project.
Are you looking for a way to...
Show your husband and your mother-in-law that you're nailing this writing thing?
Stop doubting yourself and start making progress?
Feel confident you're headed in the right direction and are doing what's needed to publish your novel?
Know which steps to take at which time to really see your writing improve as you self-edit?
Stop feeling guilty about everything surrounding your WIP and know that you're enough?
"If you get stuck, draw with a different pen. Change your tools; it may free your thinking."

Hi there, I'm Elzevera.
As self-editing coach, it's my mission to help fiction writers thoroughly edit their manuscript and make it publish-ready without overwhelm.
When I started working with clients as a professional editor after completing my MA in editing, I discovered the vast majority of writers despise editing. After feeling sad and frustrated about this because I knew how important self-editing is to fulfil a story's full potential and because I love it so much myself, I realised I was in a perfect position to help writers make the most of the self-editing stage.
That's why I've created online courses that provide the guidance and support you need to really nail the self-editing process and finally make your dream of publishing your book come true.

What's the difference between the Self-Editing Success course and Self-Edit Like a Pro?
The Self-Editing Success mini-course provides an overview of the entire self-editing process, but doesn't go into detail for each of the steps. Self-Edit Like a Pro fully guides you through each and every step that goes into self-editing your novel, from first draft to publisheable manuscript including things like how to create an immersive world, organic characters and how to line edit your writing to strengthen it.
