Every step leads to a story

We will work together to ensure that your writing project—film treatment or TV outline to pilot or spec script, TV bible, novel manuscript, blog post, or creative non-fiction story—reflects both your creativity and industry standards.

NOTE: Although this page focuses on film and television projects, contact me at joy@jtljourneys.com to discuss other specific writing and editing needs, from fiction and non-fiction manuscripts to blogs and articles. I have been a journalist and technical writer, edited novels, and written documentary scripts so I understand non-fiction writing requirements.

It is important to remember that not all storyediting notes are about problems. I flag funny, poignant, and unexpected research points, scenes, Act and chapter endings, pieces of dialogue, and plot points that result in me/any reader having a “wow” or “ah ha” moment.

Additional Services

I always enjoy working with a writer through different stages of his/her writing project(s). If you are interested in getting feedback over an extended period of time, or on additional drafts of your work, these services are available and negotiable.

How Will You Get Your Story Editing or Script Consulting Notes?

We will decide together how you would like to receive my feedback.  I can email my comment pages, make notes directly on your emailed script, or perhaps you would prefer I write my notes on a hard copy of your work. NOTE: My printing of your script will involve an additional cost of 10 cents per page. You can also mail me a hard copy of your work, with return postage fees applicable.

I have a PayPal account,–“Joyce Thierry Llewellyn”–and will begin reading your work once I have received 75% of the payment.
