Updated

I have several story concepts for short romantic stories, and I'd like some help turning them into finished works. I have had success with Elance in the past and I'd like to expand my involvement on this site! What I've found to be successful in the past is a collaborative process, whereby I provide you with a rough plot outline, you flesh it out into an almost-finished product, and then I make my final round of edits/additions before publishing it. My rate of compensation is negotiable but will be approximately $400 for a 12,000 word story. (I estimate that you'll end up writing about 80% of the final word count, i.e. ~9,000 words, and my own contributions will make up the remainder. I am fairly hands-on and this is definitely a team effort!) Previously published or self-published authors strongly preferred. Please send a 500-1,000 word writing sample along with your proposal. Preference will be given to authors who can commit to having 5,000 words written by the end of this month. Thanks for reading!
