FLEXIBILITY

When my son was 3 months old, we hopped on a plane to Miami for a quick vacation. I packed a proofread with me: Jonathan Kellerman’s latest thriller. There is nothing better than sitting under an umbrella on the beach, my son frolicking with my sister, as I read a fabulous suspense story—one that paid for the entire trip. That is the spirit of being a freelancer.

A FREE EDUCATION

I’m a Jeopardy! freak. After I started proofreading, I noticed that since I’ve been reading a little bit about a lot of things, I get so many more questions right . . . and faster than the contestants on the show. I plan on getting a slot on Jeopardy! next year. Brad Rutter won over a million dollars in 2002. I’m going to beat that. I’m completely serious.

SHOW ME THE MONEY

It’s a great little secret, my proofreading. I am a writer, which heaven knows is anything but steady. But between writing gigs, I get to read other writers’ work . . . and make money doing it! It’s like getting paid to do research for my own writing career . . . plus, it covers my rent every month and then some.

SO, WHAT IS IT?

I wish there had been a proofreading program in school so that I would have known about this sooner. I don’t have to answer to anybody, I can read all day in my pajamas and fuzzy slippers, and I have such a comfortable work environment—my home. Who knew?
