When the world of an anime otaku and a book editor combine, you know there is something seriously wrong with you.

I just got my first job as an editing intern done, and I was worried about the time I used, but Chris, my boss said that three working days was plenty fast enough, so there wasn't a problem. I was freaking out, though, because there was only two pages to the assignment, and it took me forever to go through it doing the best job I could.

It's a little intimidating trying to straighten out someone's writing when they're older and more experienced than you, but I'm really good with the placement of commas, so I could catch those pretty quickly.

Perks to being an editor:
-You get to read the manuscript before anyone else in the general public
-You can work from the comfort of your own home
-Your pretty red pen seems to be brighter and more fluid when you use it on other people's writing

I love it so very much!
