When I was fourteen, I self-published a short book. I was proud, but I wasn’t satisfied. I’d been reading day in and day out for fourteen years, and I knew what a good book looked like. The second-rate, even my second-rate, wasn’t good enough.
As an Editing and Publishing student at BYU, I’m constantly striving towards that 100% five star book—or dissertation, or technical report, or whatever it is you’re writing. I edit because I’ve been doing it my whole life. And I love it.
I also love singing, jogging, playing the accordion, and rocking some overalls. The point is, I commit to what I’m passionate about, and I’m passionate about good writing.
