Curse You, Exuberant Nature!

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.  🙂

    LOL. whew.. sorry had to do that.
    I suffer something similar except my particular problem is: if I don’t get all crazy with the submissions right away i lose interest.
    Sure I’m writing but i end up hardly submitting.
    mostly i’m lazy though.
