MY EDITING BUSINESS

WORD: Editing ,Straight Up
I don't know why; I just love this. I figure it will attract people with senses of humor.
Karl Schmidt-Rotluff, Woman with Bag, 1915
I've built a new "website" for my editing business: WORD: Editing, Straight Up. Check it out.

I've had BUSINESS cards made, I'm looking into opening a separate BUSINESS account.


Allow me to introduce a woman whose manuscript I edited last year, Martha Thompson.

artha self-published a memoir about her struggle with anorexia called The Oxygen Mask Rule that just received a 2012 New York Book Festival - Honorable Mention winner in the Biography/Autobiography category and is a Finalist in the Women's Issues category of the 2012 International Book Awards.

She has been a wonderful example: as a writer and as a human being. So I rejoice for her.

Check out her book!

  1. Your new BUSINESS sounds exciting and productive! As for the color scheme, the green is basically fine, but the purple is pretty dissonant.

  2. This is great news, Heather. You express the gist, the vision, of your new business so well. You show the deeper meaning of editing! Yes, you will be adding to beauty to the world (you already do) and acting as a "midwife" to ideas. I love the way you envisage your work, as being so integrally entwined with who you are, and your own growth. That is a wonderful way to view the work we do.

    Well, I support you in it all, and will add my prayers to this endeavour. May it go from strength to strength. I have a feeling it will, and that this is the start of a new and exciting chapter! Bless you.

  4. I love the painting of "The Woman with a Bag" as the Logo for your new venture. But I think you should rename it: Woman with a Headache!!
