“Text on screen” by Johnny Frank Nielsen
“One cool judgment is worth a thousand hasty counsels. The thing to do is to supply light and not heat.” – Woodrow Wilson

Do you need a response to your text?


It is difficult for every writer to know whether what is written gets its message across and whether it is clear and inviting for the reader. The writer knows very well what it is all about, but the question is whether the reader does too. At times a text may be technically challenged.

All of these questions and many more can drive the writer insane when there is no audience to answer them. Frustration increases if the audience available is only able to judge the text as good, bad or confusing: What exactly makes it good, bad or confusing? An evaluation of the manuscript answers all these questions. The aim of the evaluation is to help find the heart and personality of the text so that it can become alive like the author.

Which kinds of texts do I evaluate?


I evaluate novels, short stories, lyric poetry, drama, film scripts, non-fiction, essays and other exciting creations that combine different genres of texts, whether it is a question of detective novels, thrillers, suspense, romance, erotica, science fiction, fantasy, humor, adventure, children’s literature or something else.
If you need a response to your story while you are writing it – e.g. to one chapter at a time – you can choose Writing coaching instead.
