We're back with another Meet a Maker Monday—our monthly feature highlighting Coworkers in our space in downtown Asheville! We're excited to introduce Liz Anupama, a freelance content editor. Read on to learn more about Liz's inspirations and how creativity manifests in her work!
Every single day, my clients give me such inspiration! The excitement they feel when they see their ideas actually coming to life and becoming a book is a privilege to witness … their joy is contagious, and it makes me appreciate what I do even more.
Editing is not just fixing mistakes. It is more about moving around words, paragraphs, or pages of text, trying them in different places, until they fit perfectly -- just like a puzzle, or a painting: so that when you stand back and look at the final work, it is a beautiful, cohesive whole.
Anywhere I can focus, which some days is on my couch; other times it's at my amazing cowork space (I'm talking about you, Center for Craft!) and sometimes it's outside in my hammock!
When I'm stuck, 99% of the time it's because I need to eat. It's as simple as that!
Do what you want to do right now -- don't wait for someone to hold your hand. The universe is a magical place. You will always be taken care of.
I am absolutely jump-for-joy THRILLED to be editing a book about the history of the national main street movement, written by one of the people who helped get it all started. Next project: Sci-Fi! Time travel during a pandemic … (sounds good to me!)
