Developmental Editor | Manuscript & Screenplay Assessments


Just finished a draft of your manuscript or screenplay? Getting ready to send your story out to the big, wide world? Or are you just looking for some honest, constructive feedback on your writing?

I'm Rose Drabble, AKA Script Rose, writer, and developmental editor. I help writers develop their writing further by providing them with constructive reports that suggest potential revisions for future drafts. My feedback covers story components such as characterization, pacing, plot, theme, and dialogue. Check out my services page for more details. Got a query? Contact me


“I asked Rose Drabble to have a look at one of my pilot scripts that I have been having some trouble with and she couldn’t have been more helpful. She was quick to reply to my email and had her notes in my inbox the very next day. Rose clearly highlighted a very major portion of my script that needed reconsidering, which has helped me reassess what I am trying to do with the piece and how I want to get the drama across. Thanks very much Rose!”

“The feedback I received from Rose was very detailed and considered. She knew the material well and had clearly put in the time to read the script and break it down. The turn around was quick and the feedback was very helpful when I redrafted my script. Highly recommend!”

" Rose Drabble has a patient and pleasant approach. She imparts thoughtful criticism in a respectful manner, which makes it easier to digest challenges to favourite scenes and treasured bits of dialogue. Many editors will use criticism as an opportunity to re-write a client’s script in their own image, but she focused on the intent of my story and working it into the best script it could be.”
