The job of an editor...

Did you know that yesterday was the International Day of Happiness?

I was certainly feeling very joyous, enjoying a lovely break before starting back to work today. This morning, there was, of course, a case of the post-holiday blues but it is so much easier to get back to work when you love what you do.

And I couldn’t be happier with my job. Being an editor has always been my dream, ever since I was small. Surrounded by books and words all day was my idea of heaven – even if my eyesight has suffered for it. It was amazing working in-house at a publisher, which I always thought was the end-goal, but going freelance has been just fabulous! It’s hard work and certainly not easy being your own boss – seriously need to curb the “snack” runs – but it is so invigorating. I get to work with the most talented individuals, publishers, authors, book bloggers and bookstagrammers, other small businesses, and that is such an honour.

It’s the simple things in life that make me happy: a cup of tea in the morning, walks in the fresh air with loved ones, curling up with a good book. But what they say is true, if you love what you do, you never work a day in your life.
