Most people fantasize about the job where they never feel like they go to ‘work.’ They love what they do and they do what they love. For some, passion pays the bills.
In an article I read recently in the ATA Chronicle (American Translators Association), author Tony Beckwith wrote of his Freelancer Envy. As a young man, he dreamed of a career where he could be his own boss, set his own hours, dictate his own pay.
He eventually made his dream a reality and became a freelance translator, utilizing his multi-lingual skills to develop a career where he could work for himself. Those of us here at Red Pen Prose can certainly relate. We are freelance proofreaders, editors, and writers, making a living doing what we love.
And we don’t take it for granted. We understand that the art of the English language, the complexity of grammar, the intricacies of the written word, do not come easy to everyone. But to us, words are our passion. Let our passion work for you.
If you aren’t a wordsmith, Red Pen Prose can help.
