Taking a break

Posted on: December 2, 2014

In an effort to help bring in some extra income, I placed an ad on Craigslist to edit papers for college students about a month ago.  No bites.  So, I kept renewing it knowing that there are college students out there somewhere who must need editing services.

Finally, one day I received an email with the words “Editing Services” in the subject line.  I thought it would be from a college student looking for help.  But, I was wrong.  I wasn’t prepared for what I found….

It was a request for editing services, but not for college papers.  It was for editing two novels!  I couldn’t believe it.  A self-publishing author saw my ad and decided to entrust me with editing two new books of his.  As I read the words, I thought maybe this wasn’t for real.  After all, you never know on Craigslist.  I emailed him back and it turns out it is VERY legitimate!  I’m going to be editing two novels!

That being said, I’m afraid  I’ll have to take a short hiatus from blogging.  I know I haven’t been posting too frequently as of late anyway, but I have been able to write a little at least.  But, with these two novels now in my possession, I’m going to need to be very intentional about editing those and putting other things aside for now.  Hopefully I’ll be able to find some time here and there to put up an ocassional blog post, but we’ll see.

So, I hope you can rejoice with me in my new-found role despite the fact that it means I’ll be taking a break from my humble blog for a little while.  But, don’t worry, I’ll be back soon!

Thank you for being a faithful reader of this blog.
