A long time ago, in a single-screen movie theater located in a small town not unlike other small towns, J. J. Brown became a writer.
The movie was Star Wars, she was seven years old and fell so completely in love with that galaxy far, far away that she wanted to be a part of it. So she created her own alter ego and wrote herself into it. By the time she had started high school and began writing her own fiction, she had forty characters in various, established creations – she later discovered that what she had written was called fan-fiction. The paper on which she had kept a list of those characters and their respective universes is long gone, but the skills she’d developed as a writer remained.
Years later, with a friend’s encouragement, she took a course in editing and realized that she had also gained the skills to edit. Working with her own editor helped to pinpoint her own strengths and skills to help other writers.
Brown’s goal at Wordslinger Copy & Edit is to provide that same guidance and feedback to new and established writers, clarifying ideas one word at a time. Established in July 2017, she is providing writers with a professional mentor and an objective view point to help them develop their voice and their best work. Brown’s skills can also help businesses, by focusing the content on their websites and giving it a specific voice.
Whether it’s promotional material, a short story or a 1,000 page manuscript, the editor’s job is to help the writer shape their work into the best and most polished product it can be.
Her commitment to the writer is to help do just that.
She specializes in the following categories:
- Manuscripts (80,000-100,000 words)
- Short Stories (25,000-40,000 words)
- Web Content
