writing and editing

Looking Back at 2023

It’s hard to believe 2023 is coming to an end and 2024 is just around the corner. Once a year I like to sit back and review the year. Some of my accomplishments are listed below.

  • Took a wonderful class on coaching writers
  • Added coaching writers to my list of services
  • Began offering my services on Reedsy
  • Coached four writers of children’s books
  • Added my name to the Mentoring Program for the Northwest Editors Guild
  • Mentored two mentees (editors) new to editing
  • Edited several wonderful manuscripts
  • Began learning about AI (ChatGPT and Bard)
  • In talks about becoming a consultant for craft books
  • Added my name to the list of freelance editors for DK Publishing, Quarto, and Sourcebooks
  • Edited a revised cookbook for DK Publishing
  • Submitted a proposal to Women in Publishing for their 2024 Writers Summit
  • Consulted with an author on their cookbook.

If this little exercise taught me anything, it’s wonderful to review your accomplishments. Remember: These are my accomplishments, not yours. Results vary. Never compare your accomplishments to the accomplishments of others.

Here’s to a wonderful and productive 2024!
