NaNoWriMo Day 20: When Business Trumps Art

As a person who not only writes fiction for a living but who also edits fiction as well I find it sometimes hard to separate myself from the work that I am editing.  This is most evident on the days that I am unable to write on my own novel.  I am at the tail end of editing project on another work of fiction by one of my more steady clients and it is one of those stories that just captivates you and pulls you into wanting to learn more and more about its characters.  I wish I could tell you more details about what is so amazing about this story but its confidential.  I am still trying to get my word count done for today but I am just so moved by the work that I’m editing and after all business is still business and I must make money.  Hopefully I will have more to tell you about what’s going on in my own novel tomorrow.  Until next time…Do you think your novel will pull your editor in?
