thewritingcoach's podcast

Welcome to The Writing Coach. On this podcast, I speak with the instructors, editors, coaches, and mentors who help writers and authors create their art, build their audience, and sell their work.

In episode #83 of The Writing Coach podcast, I speak with Blaine Bradshaw.

Blaine is a freelance editor with 10 years experience that started in the Army. While initially his scope was limited to geographic reports and briefings he expanded to novels and opened Superior Story in 2014. Over the years he has worked with dozens of writers to develop compelling stories while maintaining their unique voice.

During our discussion, Michelle describes:

  • Why a single typo led to him having to do 1000 pushup
  • How he stumbled upon a vibrant writing community on the Deviant Art platform
  • Why his experience with a factory-style editing service ultimately led to his personalized approach to working with writers
  • The complexity involved in defining different types of editing
  • The role empathy plays in the editing process
  • And much more!
