I have a degree in creative writing and a post-graduate degree in editing and communication, but I’m not using it be a freelance editor. In fact, I’m only using it for myself. I didn’t spend all that time investing in myself to waste my time on others. Selfish? Yes. But I already have a job that gives me a decent supply of money. And from what I’ve heard, freelancing is risky. I’d rather spend my free time on working on my own things. My books are not going to write themselves.
