Just dropping in with an update from yesterday! I got the editing job! Persistence pays off in the end! Now a little bit about the gig (or at least what I can tell you without spoiling anything for the author). I'll be editing a short novel that will be self published. I'm not getting paid for it, but since this is my first real editing gig, I'm okay with that. I'm still in school and need the experience more than anything. I think the coolest part is that I'll be credited in the finished product. Really, I'm just over the moon about the whole thing. The author is delightful and I'm really excited to be working with her.
Here's to experience!
