My Editor is Hard at Work

Well one of them is. I asked my husband to read my novel, just thinking that he would read it. Yeah, he’s making changes. I’m not sure if it’s a good thing or not. I’ll find out once he finishes.

I’m not complaining mind you, well at least not yet. If he decides that I need to make major plot changes then there may be some problems. On a side note, he just said it was very good! (Although he’s biased so I’m not sure if I should count it).

My amazing husband editing my novel.

In the mean time, I’ve been working on all the technical stuff to include in my book. So far, I’ve got a first draft of my acknowledgements page, my dedication page, and my about the author page. (Thanks, JR for the help on that).

I Think I’ve Found My Calling 

Well at least my husband thinks I have. Since January I’ve been in full edit mode right. So I’ve been finding inconsistencies in other forms of story telling (except my own ironically). It may be getting to the point where I’m annoying him by pointing things out. 

He mentioned the orher day that he thinks I should be an editor. I have to agree with him on that. I like to think I’m good at it. It’s not that I don’t like writing, I love it. I crave creating new worlds and lives of characters. It’s my own way of distracting myself from unfortunate events that I have to deal with. I won’t bore yoiu weith the details of them. However, I think editing may be a way to help establish my own writing career. Or it could be my career and writing can continue to be a hobby. 

Now I just need to do don’t research in how to become one. Does anyone have any resources and or connections for where to start? I would greatly appreciate it.
