To me, voice stands out as one of the most important aspects of writing. I've spent hours agonizing over a single paragraph worrying over it "sounding right". Over time, my education has given me the privilege of putting words to my feelings, and some of those worries go. A second set of eyes, however, can oftentimes be helpful.
Writing can become a roller coaster of emotion. The best piece of advice I have received when it comes to self-editing is that you sometimes have to take the favorite part of your work and cut it out. Oftentimes, the part we love the most is the weakest part. This is why the importance of a good editor should not be ignored.
Voice, as I mentioned before, is important because that is what makes your work uniquely yours. As an editor, I want to help you bring out the best in your writing while preserving your voice. I can help you cut the fluff, spot inconsistencies, and provide constructive criticism to help you refine your work to its fullest potential.
