And on those days, there's waiting, wondering, teeth-gritting, and dreaming too. Plus, lots of email refreshing.
And your emotions are all over the map.
Because you're always waiting on any number of things (depending on what stage you're in):
*to have your novel beta'd/critiqued
*to hear from agents/pub houses you've queried
*to get revisions notes from you agent
*to hear from editors you've gone on submission with
*and even MORE waiting after you've been published (editor notes, ARCs, reader feedback)
It's hard not to get caught up in other people's news, and feel many things all at once. Happiness, pride, envy, disappointment, and ALWAYS (always) hope--that there's enough room at the publishing table for you!
So whatever stage you're in, remember to send your wish out there and let the wind whisper it to all the right places. And then get busy with other things, no matter how HARD it might be!
What are YOU waiting on?
