I am an editor for the online publishing house, Coffee House Writers. I started there as a content writer in June 2017 and still create content for them occasionally. Shortly after I started writing for CHW, I was offered the opportunity to become an editor for the publisher. The offer was very unexpected and once I got off the call with the CEO of the company, I screamed and did the happy dance. My dreams were coming true.
Fast forward to this past Tuesday night when the familiar Gmail “ding” notified me of an email from the CEO of Coffee House Writers. When I tell you guys I did some big time screaming when I found out that I had been selected as Editor of the Month for October, believe that. It’s always a good thing when you’re recognized for your work. Being recognized for doing work that you love is something totally different.
I have always taken pride in my writing, but this piece about my nephew’s death on December 9, 2017, is extremely special to me. He left this world at the age of 41 as the result of heart attack, and losing him was the catapult I needed to form Scrivener Shine Edits. Following his example, I made the conscious decision to do what I love and to live my life to the fullest. My passion for writing and editing has become my full-time work. None of us have a minute to waste – start doing the things that bring you joy because your time is always shorter than you think.
I realize that writers and editors come a dime-a-dozen, but finding one whose passion is working the trade from the heart is not always easy. In my mind, the written word is your presentation to the world. You don’t always get the chance to shake hands with a potential client. You won’t always have the opportunity to verbally tell people what you do and how you can do it for them. What is written about your company is, in effect, that handshake. Showing off your business’s ability to meet the needs of potential clients is my business.
