The Good Life.
Soo... I've been doing a lot of research on the two different careers I want. In case you don't know, I'd like to be either an English professor teaching American Lit. or a Book Editor at a publishing company. But after the research I've decided there's only one thing that I REALLY wnat to do and that is to work for a publishing company in New York City. The job descriptions fits my personality perfectly. You read manuscripts sent in by agents, etc. all night and then pick out which ones should be considered. Then you edit the manuscript down and work with graphic designers to find an acceptable cover and you schedule events to promote the books. You also wine and dine with poets and writers galore to push your company. Doesn't that sound scrumptious?
Anyway, I spent the last hour googling publishing companys and internships for this summer. They all seem like so much fun.
I can just see myself now, waking up in a soapboxed sized apartment with books and clothes thrown everywhere only to go outside into the greatness of NYC to my little office decorated with plants where I'll spend my time reading and writing and eating lunch with poets.
