One of the exercises I'm undertaking at the moment to focus my job/freelance work search is to identify what skills I really enjoy using and how I might use those.
Apart from my publishing, online and project skills I happen to be a very able knitter who already occasionally teaches and produces samples for designers. And it seems I have found a way to combine this with my editing experience.
This week I've been on a course to learn the art of technical editing for knitting patterns which is, I have to say, very technical combining an understanding of the craft and of garment construction with attention to detail, an understanding of the target audience and maths - square roots for example are important.
Who knows what proportion of my future employment will come from this but isn't it everyone's goal to have work that comes from something they truly enjoy?
