At the risk of stating the obvious, finishing my novel is one of my bucket list items in life. When I hit fifty, I decided to scale back on the things I would not be reminiscing over in a rocking chair in my addled old age, i.e., work.
Don’t get me wrong, work was once a bucket list item. Becoming a professional editor was a biggie when I was twenty-five. But sanitizing engineering reports and court-related documents was never in the bucket. So I had no trouble deciding to walk away from my editing after all these years of doing it.
Until January 16th. I got an email inviting me to do the very job that made me chose editing in the first place. I got the opportunity to be an editor for a science fiction and fantasy house. The publisher was tiny, just starting up, but there it was, still deep at the bottom of the bucket. I had to say yes.
How is this related to the mission of detailing my MS’s development. I’m not sure…and that’s why I put it here. This could further delay my attention to my own MS, or, maybe, just maybe, it will wind up inspiring me.
