True Fact about me: I'm not patient. Ever. I'm one of the most impatient people I know. I can't handle waiting in line for a Starbucks.
So HOW am I going to WAIT for three to four months to see if I'm getting a rejection letter? (or a request for my full manuscript).
In other news: I sent off my Query Letter and 20 pages of my manuscript at lunch time today.
And now I wait. I am a serious mess of emotions right now. I can't even describe how much I feel like crying. I know it's silly, but this is all very scary. It's a first. Not only that, it's a first that might not end the way I want it to. I'd like to say I'm pretty ready for the rejection, but even while I write this, I am imagining the opposite. I'm pretty sure, in reality, a rejection is more likely. At least, that's what I've heard, and I think it'll be easier if I think positive but with complete reality of what may or may not happen.
What will I do while I wait? I guess I'll start on my next novel. And impatiently tap my foot (for 3-4 months).
I'm really glad I did this. I feel less brave than I thought I would. Probably because I feel more worried and nervous at this moment.
So, the waiting game begins. I'm ready. Luckily enough, I have a lot to keep me busy (like the hunt for a new place to live, blogging and writing).
Photos of my journey: You've already seen some of them, but I'm sharing again.
The very beginning of my novel writing (on a different laptop). Writing on a patio. I loved it!

|About 300 Pages in the end|
That's it. Life is pretty good right now. I was hoping I'd feel more relief, but maybe I'll just wait on that.

Do you have a preference order for all the publishers you're going to try?
Kind of. I'm starting with Saskatchewan publishers first, and I know who I'd like to work with. From there... I'm not sure.Delete
What an accomplishment!! Now take a few days to relax and enjoy life. NMReplyDelete
