Just like writing every day, editing every day keeps those muscles of your mind limber. I think if you have prior experience as an editor and mad skills, then freelance editing can be a good way to establish yourself in the writing community. The only problem with freelance editing is 1) so many people, (both skilled and unskilled) have started a freelance editing biz and 2) it can be hard to get those first few clients and build a following. For these reasons if you can build connections in the writing community before you start your biz, you have a better chance of your freelance biz doing well. Hope this helps :)(less)

It's been wonderful seeing the process of publishing from both sides of the fence, creator of content vs gate-keeper to publishing. I'm not permitted to talk about what I do for the literary agency (who I also can't name), but I can say they have been very gracious in sharing the soup to nuts of how to be an agent, in all the aspects you can imagine (negotiations, contracts, industry trends, foreign rights, etc). It's invaluable information you can't get unless you're on the 'inside'. And both with them and especially as an editor for Chimera, it has been exciting and rewarding to help discover and mold new talent. I have to be honest though, the world of publishing is not an easy ride - like anything else it's an enormous amount of work and you have to have a passion for it. In the beginning, it's extremely hard to make a living at it, plain and simple. But now, when I'm reading or editing a manuscript and I flat out forget to make dinner, looking up to realize it's already five o'clock, then I know a project has that certain something and it's very exciting. And that makes it all worth while :)(less)

Marlo Berliner Thank you, Penelope! You're my first friend on Goodreads, LOL. Although, somehow GR now says I have 268 friends - I have no idea how that happened! I'm trying to figure all this out - it's a bit overwhelming! But I've wanted to get on here for a while.


Penelope Marzec Thanks for your friendship. :-)
