SimpleMarkup #21 – Roller Coaster

Confession time: I’ve been doing so many of these now (how did I get to 21 already??) that I’m starting to forget which ideas I’ve already done. I think it’s about time I start printing the comics out and putting them in a folder so I don’t accidentally recycle something.

This week’s comic deals with the roller coaster ride that is freelance editing. Some days are bad, and you get into a serious slump and can’t do anything but mope. Other days, one small note can make you glow, and you get everything done while on that high.

One of my favorite parts of this job is finding a mention of my name in a book’s acknowledgments. It’s a great feeling to know you’ve done well.

Although I welcomed 2018 with open arms, this month has been really rough life-wise, and it’s been affecting my productivity. For that reason, my SimpleMarkup mug giveaway will have to wait for another week. Keep an eye out for it!
