Beautiful Day

There are days when I am reminded of why I love my job. Today is the day I finished, and sent to press, a 4,548 page manuscript. After having spent dozens upon dozens of hours, suffered various irksome setbacks, dealt with bizarre, inexplainable problems, the largest project of my professional career thus far has come to a close. And despite being excruciatingly exhausted, it was worth it. The manuscript is clean, the problems are solved, and a great deal of new skills were picked up along the way.

Job satisfaction? You bet. Damn I love working as an editor.
