It's been a whirlwind first part of the year, hasn't it? I need not discuss the state of our nation or the world here, but I assume you understand what I mean. As for my Etsy shop, I've been receiving an increase in writing service inquiries. This has been a blessing because, as you know, I'm an academically trained writer with an MA degree. However, one thing that clients frequently ask for is editing done within 24 hours. I unfortunately can't meet this requirement right now. Firstly, writing and editing is a process that takes intense concentration and time to complete. For me, at least. I look over a piece many times before I am happy with the edits I've made. Secondly, I contact the client with my questions on the piece, and don't start editing until I hear back from them - these questions can include tone, content, word choice, a need for more detail(s), etc. And lastly, I have a busy home life that includes a very mobile toddler whose love for conversation and books takes precedent over all else in the moment. I edit in the in-between moments, in the wee morning and twilight hours, during nap time. And the wait is entirely worth it.
