Yesterday I ran across a FB post in a group I’m a member of that really caught my eye: A small publishing house looking for a contracted editor to edit and critique lesson plans and family resources for the next few months. With the possibility of more work in the future. It’s an area in which I have tons of experience, and it’s something I love to do.
So I spent every moment of my evening pulling together a resume and cover letter (holy cow, it’s been a long time). Thankfully, I had two writers in residence last night – my daughter and her boyfriend, who are both English majors and excellent writers/editors. They proofed everything I wrote, had extremely helpful suggestions, and by 10:00 I’d hit “send” and my application was making its way through the ether.
If I were to get the job, it would be just in my spare time – shouldn’t affect my day job at all. With my plans to remodel the basement bathroom over the summer, the extra $$$ would certainly come in handy.
