It's a perfect place to just info-dump all this angst and anxiety that I've been harboring since I started sending out the queries in the beginning of February.
To date...12 sent; 9 rejections; 3 haven't responded.
I have a short list of other places to send to, but I'm holding off for a bit. No, I don't know why. Probably cause I'm disappointed that no one likes my mashed potatoes. :)
This is when anxiety can get the better of me. If I even get a small nibble, I might assume that that's all I'll ever get, and jump at the slightest chance, instead of waiting for the right one to come along.
It's not easy. None of this is easy. Waiting. Pining. Wishing. Dreaming. Begging. Sniffling. Hoping.
Why we put ourselves through this? I have no idea.
So, I try to work on other things. I've started to write down a few story ideas. I like them, but I'm not real passionate about them yet.
I really need to fall in love with my guy character. Is that shallow? I need to love him and want to see him suffer all at the same time. :)
Meanwhile, I'll keep moving forward. That's what we do.
What are you up to? Are you doing what you need to be doing?
