Random Thoughts on Editing:
Recently a friend and I were having dinner together. She asked me during the course of the meal about my profession. Was I the type of person who woke up in the morning and jumped right into editing a manuscript? Or did I have to slowly ease myself into it. The question was an easy one to answer.
I wake up in the morning and the first thing I think about in the morning when I open my eyes is all I want to do is edit. Yes, I’m one of those people. Some days I can do this. I’ll wake up very early, in the wee hours of the morning, and begin editing on the current book I’m working on. And some days, I’ll have other pressing matters and I won’t start editing until the afternoon.
But no matter when I edit, it’s a joy for me. Always.
I enjoy working with writers who are just beginning their career, and I enjoy working with seasoned professionals. Each manuscript has its own challenges and surprises. Each work is a labor of love and I dedicate myself to making it the best I can.
