I Became an Editor
Proofing is owned and managed by Jacqueline Doucette
was the only student in my
high school English classes
who actually enjoyed learning about grammar and parts of speech.
I will pick up just about any written work
and peruse it
when I've got a moment to spare.
I've spent over 30
working in various capacities for the same employer
and I've enjoyed it all.
spent many hours wondering
what I want to be when I grow up,
and I've come to the conclusion that
there's no need to grow up,
as long as I love what I'm doing and can
make a living at it!
first love is
after a match one night
that I realized editing was the ideal job for
been looking for a new
line of work,
something that I could
take into retirement from my current day job.
One of my team mates
asked what I like to do most.
The answer was easy - sit on the beach
with my feet up, reading a book!
the light bulb
turned on -
how better to make use of my
somewhat annoying habit of pointing out everyone's writing errors
indulge my desire to read than by becoming an editor?
the rest, as the saying
goes, is history!
