Officially pulling my hair out

January 22, 2007 at 8:35 pm 3 comments

Saturday I received the post card I sent with my Q&S. I now know Harlequin has it. Can you hear me freaking out over the Internet?

I can say I cried with my first Q&S, but I think that one got lost in the mail. But this time I know they have it. Am I just waiting for my first rejection letter? Hope not. If they want a full or partial will my stomach feel like I left it at the top of this “getting published” roller coaster. Most definitely.

I never truly wanted anything more in my life than to write. When I first started it just felt right to make up people and solve all of their problems. Then I finished my first book and I was hooked. It’s the greatest feeling in the world to finish a book. Now I’m putting myself and my dreams out there. I think I couldn’t be more proud of myself. I’m 21 years old and I know what in this hectic world I want.

So now the true waiting begins.

    Don’t pull your hair out. This is a process like no other. Don’t angst over when you’ll hear back or if you’ll hear back. Let it go and move on to the next book. You’re a writer. Now write. Waiting is the one part of this process that we have no control over and have to learn to accept because every step from this point forward will be you waiting for something. So, spend that time writing. It’s the most theraputic medicine for the waiting game that we writers could ever wish for. Good luck and much success.
