I’d just like to share my current mood with you all: WOOT!
I just successfully negotiated a project rate with a college professor to edit her manuscript. It’s the highest rate I have ever been paid.
She had been given my name by her publisher, whom I had contacted long ago but had not heard from since.
She said she picked me because she liked the business name I use.*
I have the next three weeks solidly booked with work.
Now, back to said work. Thank you for listening to me gloat.
* Sorry, I’m not revealing it here. I’m keeping that part of my life strictly separate from this one. I like to feel free to write about whatever I want here without worrying about clients Googling it and being offended or weirded out over my personal life.
