Editors in Victoria – thinking of you in lockdown this week
Victorian editors: we’re thinking of you this week during lockdown.
On Time Typing, Editing and Proofreading’s editors live in Victoria (Melbourne and Gippsland) and Canberra.
Obviously our editors in Victoria are in lockdown with the rest of the editors and everyone else in Victoria this week.
As we editor freelancers usually work from home, a lockdown does not change our work lives as dramatically as it changes, say, the life of an employee who usually works in an office.
Unless the editor has school-age kids, of course.
As the Mum of a 12-year-old, I speak from experience. Working from home while also supervising a child who is remote schooling, due to lockdown, can be a challenging – even nightmarish. See: Juggling remote schooling with running an editing business.
Our good wishes go out to not only the editors on our team but to all editors in Victoria who are juggling working from home and remote schooling this week. And let us all cross our fingers that this lockdown will soon be over.
