A New Job!

If you follow me elsewhere online (or, you know, you’re a friend IRL), you know that I’ve recently landed a new job!

I’m moving into a new position helping direct a university writing center. Yay!

There are lots of things I love about this. I worked as a student at this same writing center for four years, so I’m familiar with and fond of this particular place. Since I’ll be spending the majority of my day working one-on-one with students on their writing, my 9-to-5 will dovetail beautifully with my freelance editing work. And, bonus, my new office is actually inside a library. Score!

Students don’t arrive back on campus for several weeks, so meanwhile, I’m spending my time thinking about the really important things, like how to furnish my office space. Should I place a mirror or a large poster on the back wall? Which of my favorite reference books should come along with me (vs. staying at home in my freelance studio)? So many important questions.

Lovely Libraries

I’ve written before of my love of beautiful books. As an editor, it’s no surprise that I’m also a big fan of organization and order. This all may help explain my natural attraction to bookshelves of all types. My editing studio is half home library, with the largest wall dedicated just to books, and I have big plans for my next house. (I’m hoping for a home library like something out of Clue.)

Today I’m daydreaming of walls of books for days…
