Reading my good friend Stephanie’s recent post, Achievement Unlocked, inspired me to share:
I just edited my first novel!
As many of you know, I’ve been advertising my editing services for hire since October. I sort of just jumped into it because I realized/remembered that I really enjoy editing (it appeals to my rule-abiding nature and love of structure), and I’m good at it. After doing it a bit for a friend here and there, I wanted to do more. In the past six months I’ve edited both fiction and nonfiction, in a variety of formats – but taking on my first project of this scale was both a little intimidating and super exciting. I am honored that the author trusted me with her work, and I have to say it was incredibly satisfying to complete the work.
I have no idea what I’ll edit next, but for the moment I feel very accomplished!
