Editing and Proofreading seem to be a natural talent I have acquired since childhood, and being asked to do it professionally in my, 'grown up years', has really been a wonderful challenge to being as optimistic and objective as possible to the authors I have worked with throughout the years.
Now, it seems that fate has taken a turn of events and I have been asked to represent them and their works, to publicly announce their books, and writings, and to submit them and retain offers and rights. "HOLY MOLY"! What a new and enduring process and learning experience this has been over the past year!
I have been loving every single minute of it though, it has taken me through a wild journey of discovering a true voice within myself.
It's really a grand journey in which I hope to look back upon and see the little worries, and the obstacles that I may overcome, and to get to know the new people I meet.
Starting a new direction in my career in Literary Services is definitely a journey. There have been moments and mornings when I awake and I am ready to take on the world and I feel terrific and proud and excited, and there have been other days, where the clouds seem to cover and loom, dread and self doubt fill me. I will keep pursuing my dream, are you ready? Lets hope so!
