I should get out more!

Most of my editorial clients are people that I never see in real life. They email their words to me, I do my thing, and then I email them back. There are exceptions, of course - I had a cuppa with a lovely author one day last week - but I don't often have any cause to leave my home office.

Last Friday, though, I actually went to a Proper Meeting in an Office with a Formal Agenda And Everything. I know! It was to discuss editorial policy on one of the journals I work on, and it was very useful, not least because I finally met the long-suffering designer I've been working with for about nine years.

In a pre-meeting chat, I learned that one of the other people there was a fiction writer (as well as what she does in her day job). Not only that, but she also runs a local writing group. Details were exchanged. She writes urban fantasy, horror and Gothic romance - safe to say we're not competing in the same markets!
