How long have you been working with Pithy Wordsmithery? What do you do here?
I have been working with Pithy on various projects since about 2014. These days my efforts focus mostly on assisting authors in the early editorial stages of publishing their work. I collaborate with writers to focus on the fundamentals behind crafting a message that is palatable to their target audience while maintaining their unique voice and vision. Together, we focus on structure, pacing, and internal logic to ensure their message is clear, concise, consistent, and clean.
What do you find inspiring about working with aspiring authors to bring their ideas to life?
Writing is so much more than transcribing thoughts to page, and every work presents its own unique set of challenges. Maintaining voice, message, and accessibility is a delicate balance that requires compromise and planning. Working with an author to really explore what it is they want to say and how we can best present that message in a way that is authoritative and persuasive is an endless puzzle, a tangled web that I never cease to delight in unraveling.
Why should an author choose Pithy when searching for a partner?
Behind every successful work is a team of professionals who worked very hard to complete it. Pithy is a true collaborator when it comes to producing and publishing content that is effective and engaging. Each client receives the attention and care required to deliver a product that is clean, professional, and most importantly, uniquely yours. Typing the final period of your work and hitting save is not, and should not, be the end of your manuscript’s life. Pithy helps ensure all your hard work pays off.
What are your hobbies / what’s one thing about you you’d like people to know
I love camping, being in the woods, and long road trips where your only worries are getting from point A to point B. I enjoy playing guitar and challenging myself to learn the songs I like. But I spend a lot of my productive free time dabbling in game design. Board games mostly.
