It’s Friday. Another week has come and gone. Before we say thank you for this week and welcome the weekend, here is a word from the Publishing Manager Lilith
This week has been so stormy and rainy in Denmark. All we could do is to be inside and work and make the best of it. This week we have been reading scripts, translating scripts, printing books, sending orders, making plans for events in autumn, answering emails, writing blogs and doing marketing. In late August we will be travelling to a new continent, both to extend our publishing house and work but also to have some rest. We have not had a proper rest in ten years!
But when you love what you do and also want to work to make your author the best, it is not that easy to take long vacations or allow yourself to rest. We also have so much fun working so it is a choice to work and don’t take weeks of rest. But what we have done for a few years now, is to work and rest every day. We may not have long weeks of vacation but we make sure we rest every day a bit and have balance to life.
When you have creative work your energy is limited. The best way to work is in fact to focus for 2-3 hours and then rest or work with tasks that don’t require full focus. So that is what we do. So we also have energy for other things in life.
It may be challenging sometimes because you never want to disappoint anyone. But if we don’t take the time to rest every day, we will not be able to run this publishing house.
When it storms and rains for weeks, we work and rest inside.
We love books and to be creative. That is where our passion and energy is.
With the right amount of work and rest, we can fulfil all our dreams and also other people’s dreams. And that is our biggest passion.
