Papertrue! True! True! True!
My experience with was great. I came across their site from the high ratings. And the high ratings proved to be true. Once I got onto their site, I was immediately helped by a Rep, a live person, who helped answer my questions and walked me through the process. That was a big plus! And as a first timer, I got a discount or free edit. That was another plus! And the transaction was quick and easy. The turnaround time was also fast, delivery was on schedule and on time as specified. Another plus! My editor was also great and very helpful with comments, notes and suggestions. And when my document was completed and I had to ask a question to my editor, the Customer Service Rep was quick to respond. They escalated the matter so that my question would reach my editor and my editor would give me a reply directly and quickly. And my editor did just that. That was a major plus! Overall, thumbs up on great Customer Service and Editorial service. I would recommend them and look forward to working with them again. Thank you!
More than I had hoped for!
Did two jobs with PaperTrue and I'm highly satisfied. In one of the jobs I had some questions regarding their proposed changes and they immediately dug into it and explained why they had chosen certain expressions instead of others and what the differences were. That's really more than I had hoped for! And their chat-people are very alert - and good fun, too!
Very trustworthy and extremely efficient
I had an academic document proofread by the papertrue team. They not only corrected numerous grammar and spelling issues, they also advised on certain expressions according to my target audience. And the best, they did so over night... extremely fast, extremely good, and trustworthy service. Will be coming here again for the next publication.
Even my tutor can not find these errors
Thank you for editing my document on time. The editor pointed my attention to my commonly made mistakes; missing words, incorrect spelling and grammatical inconsistencies throughout the document.
I was happy to receive both a tracked and a clean version of the edited document.
I will happily recommend PaperTrue to my friends, and I will myself come back on a later occasion.
Excellent Service, Highly Recommended
I have used PaperTrue for several editing projects for my website. They have edited small and large projects for me. PaperTrue offers great pricing with no hidden fees, they always deliver on time and I love the fact that they provide a clean version and a corrected version showing the recommend changes. I highly recommend this company for anyone looking for quality editing services. They have great communications, project completion dates are given when ordered and they have consistently met the deadline. I am extremely satisfied and I will remain a loyal customer.
Great service, great company!
We are a Spanish advertising agency that work for international companies. Usually we need our copies to be reviewed. We trust Papertrue for doing this, they are always super-professional and always deliver the documents on time. I recommend them 100%
Improvement in structure, language and formatting
My cover letter was corrected very professionally, with very detailed comments and explanation. Smaller issues like my unclear description were changed shortly in a revision version, with a very smooth communication. I have learned also from the formating. For further CVs I will still consider their service, because the cover letter has to be formulated for specific job description. I don't do massive job application.
Quick 24 hour turnaround
Paper True was quick and effective. I needed a 24 hr turnaround and they provided me edits to my resume that became the talk of the town among my team. Everyone loved how thorough the edits were. Thank you Paper True for helping me so quickly and effectively.
Aaron is the best editor!
I live in Zürich and needed to have my cooking book "The Food Is Ready" , edited in english before I publish it. So I decided to sent the manuscript to Paper True and I can only tell that I was really impress when I saw the work they did. Aaron my Editor has correct the language and grammar errors. He has done a terrific work improving phrasing and consistency of my book. If you are looking for a serious company I can really recommend Paper True. And "they are allways there available if you have any questions"
An amazing job!
As a sixteen years old Danish girl I must admit finding the right editor was hard, but I found THE one ;)
Amazing service and a welcoming chat on the website! I love the detailed comments and feedback on the tracked document :) They really did a good job at making my debut novel a lot better while still keeping my style of writing!
Much love from Denmark <3

        Short stories: Do’s and don’ts

        • calenderJun 08, 2018
        • calender 5 min read

        Where else does the phrase “Less is more” fit more perfectly than in relation to short stories? Well, hundreds of other contexts in the modern world, yes! But the origins of the phrase can be drawn back to the golden era (mid-nineteenth century until 1917) of short stories. Anton Chekhov, F Scott Fitzgerald, and Roald Dahl were masters of the writing form who set the ground for others to write brilliant short story collections and singles.  

        You too can still do a lot more with fewer words to serve the attention deficit crowds hooked to all the visual content social media has to offer. Short stories remain popular and sought out as readers get to leaf through more stories, characters, emotions, and lessons in a shorter span of time.

        Writers, beginners, and experts have a lot to experiment with this medium. Authors have to be sharp, precise & succinct with their words and sharpen their storytelling technique which effectually improves their total writing skills.

        It has become easier than ever to make your short stories reach the masses with social media platforms, writing competitions and self-publishing.

        So, what does it take to craft a memorable short story? Take a look at the dos and don’ts of short story writing:

        The do’s of short stories

        1) Keep it short

        Duh. Thanks captain obvious!

        While this is self-evident, it needs to be emphasized. Unnecessary words and long descriptions are luxuries short story writers cannot afford. Try to maintain a swift flow of the story through to the end. It’s best if it is a short read within 30 mins.

        2) Have a single focus

        In full-length novels, writers can allow characters to change and develop as time passes. They can also have subplots. Characters, setting, atmosphere, action can all be developed in a novel. But in a short story, the focus is only on one of these aspects.  

        3) Limit the characters

        Only the most important characters deserve a place in short stories. Because only major characters have a place in short stories, that is introduced requires a description and background information. Adding an unnecessary character would only take away crucial time and space from the essential elements.

        4) Devices

        As mentioned already, this is a medium where writers get to experiment. If you have to, you could change the narrative style to something non-traditional. Like telling your story through a device. Think of letters, diary entries, emails, chats. Anything with which the readers are able to relate more and improve your plot.

        5) Surprise your readers

        Give them an ending that shocks them to the core. One that makes their reading time all worth it in the end. Shorts with sickly twists that make a harrowing finish remain memorable for ages.

        Don’ts of Short Story writing:

        1)Being verbose

        Elaborate descriptions for characters and setting, exhaustive information and details don’t have a place in any story, let alone racy short stories. Expand your vocabulary and feed your imagination with fewer words.

        2) Changing POV

        Wisely decide who tells the story and stick to that voice throughout the book. Making a change in the viewpoint would distort the narrative of the story. Choose between first person, third person or the narrator’s voice to tell your story.

        3) Sticking to the same genre or theme

        To compromise on the length and word count is mandatory for this form of storytelling. However, no need to cut short on experimentation. Short stories provide you the avenue to explore more of your skills and genres you haven’t written before. Readers also take delight in reading an array of genres in a short story collection.

        Remember these when you start writing your next short story. Check out this short story writing platform and a competition where you can submit your stories. You can always trust PaperTrue with proofreading and editing to make prize-winning short stories.
