Don’t let self-doubt or criticism destroy your passion to write.

Over the years of working with clients who have written a memoir, auto-biography, semi-autobiographical novel or their first manuscript, I often hear this: ‘Is my story worth telling?’ ‘Is it a load of rubbish?’ ‘Should I give up?’  ‘Am I wasting my time?’

Picture a place that you know like the back of your hand. You know all the street names, the locals, which place makes the best coffee. You know where to find your friends.

Now visualise a complete stranger coming to your familiar place. They have never set foot here before today. How do you think they are feeling? Lost? Bewildered?

In 2014, we are still reading paperback and hard cover books, newspapers, junk mail, magazines, greetings cards, bank statements, and so on. Nowadays, almost everyone who reads printed matter also reads digital text. From toddlers to tech-savvy centenarians, people read on tablets, smartphones, TVs and computers. A book can now be read in paper form, downloaded as an eBook, or listened to as an audio book. In short, how much we read on a daily basis (think text messages, emails, social media) has actually increased dramatically, and the ways in which we read have changed considerably.

Imagine this. You have just finished writing your first novel. The elation you feel as you type ‘The End’ is palpable; it’s almost as euphoric as the birth of your first child.

It has taken many hours, weekends, late and probably sleepless nights over a significant period—possibly years to get to this point. What’s next? You tentatively hand copies around to family, friends or a writers’ group, eager for their feedback.

Do you baulk at spending money on a proofreader? Most people do. The perception is it’s non-essential and unaffordable. Why pay a professional when you can have colleagues, friends or family do it for nix? Large businesses may have the luxury of employing in-house proofreaders, editors or writing staff, but SMEs, NGOs, writers and students are not so fortunate. But before you ‘write off’ using our services, consider these questions:
