When I am editing, I feel powerful. I feel educated and smart. Maybe it's because I feel I know what I am doing. Or because it is the skill with which I hope to one day earn a living. Everything else I do, I feel like an amateur. Now, I know all my friends will chime in gushing about my creativity, but there's no need. I know I am creative, and I like it. But I still feel like an amateur creator, and homemaker, and mother, etc. But, I am a professional editor, and proud of it!
