Why hasn’t the time machine been invented yet?

I have realized in the past few months that I love to edit.  Not only my work, but others work too.  I’ve been told more than once that I have a real talent for it.  Maybe this is because of how much I read.

I feel a passion about helping someone turn their story into so much more.  I feel a sense of accomplishment when I look at their finished product and I know that I helped shape it into what it is.

I would love to find a way to make money on editing, this would help supplement my writing career of course, but how do you find a job?  I’m a stay at home mom.  I have to stay that way, so going into an office is not the answer.  Do I advertise among my writers group, or to other writers in the community?  How much do I charge?  Do I have the few people I have already worked with write me recommendations?

Once again too many questions.

I’ve come to the decision that starting a new career at my age, and no I’m not telling what my age is, is really difficult.  Why couldn’t I have just been happy with the one I already had?  Why didn’t I figure out what I really wanted to do when I was in college?

If I had a time machine I would change so many things.
