I don’t like to wait. I mean, I can be patient when I have to be. I don’t hound editors with “How long are you planning on keeping my submission, eh, buddy?” emails. I’m patient with my kids. I don’t get unruly in lines. But if I have a choice, I’d like everything to fly by at warp speed. I wrote a novel! I’m ready to query! Let’s get agented and get this thing out, fast fast!
So. Not. The. Case. I’m learning that I need to change my mindset. Instead of feeling like I need to query in order to “earn” the privilege of writing, I need to figure out how to query while I write new stuff. It’s like earning the right to see the sun, and that’s just…stupid. Besides, as much as I want everything to -Bam!- happen immediately, I really do have the rest of my life to work on this. Breathe, Self. Breathe.
Arg, I’m so new. I make so many mistakes. I accept it, I accept it, I accept it. 🙂
