The foreword to Natalie Goldberg's indispensable writing guide, Writing Down the Bones: Freeing the Writer Within, quotes a motto encased in an old oak picture frame: Do Your Work As Well As You Can and Be Kind.

As a motto for workand lifeI can't think of anything better.

Joyce perching on a pyramid in Egypt  

Whatever you write—fiction, non-fiction, business, technical or academic—I can help you perfect your manuscript. I have worked with experienced writers with several books under their belt, with new writers looking forward to their first publication, and with writers who don't really want to be writers at all but have to produce good stuff. I have worked with novelists, memoirists, inspirational writers, how-to writers, historians, academics, teachers, students and business people. I welcome you all, and to all I promise ...

I will edit your words as well as I can—with the expertise that comes from years of writing and editing—and I will be kind. I appreciate what you have gone through to produce those precious words, and I understand what a leap of faith it is to entrust them to the critical eye of a stranger. If you're ready, I'm ready!
