Still Waiting


Wow! Time flies.  It's hard to believe we're already in the throws of July's ISWG.  If you'd like to learn more about this wonderful group, click here: Alex's Blog.  

I'm posting a bit late today.  Sometimes life gets in the way.  To begin with, in regard to writing, there isn't much I'm not insecure about this month.  I'm still waiting to hear back from the publishing houses where I submitted my MS.  One of the senior editors was kind enough to let me know she was looking forward to reading it, but that was two and a half weeks ago, and still no word.  I know, I know, no news is good news, or so it's been said.  Yet, it doesn't make the waiting any easier. 

I keep asking myself- Should I interpret the publisher's silence to mean that the book I toiled over for four and a half years isn't good enough?  I realize I have no control over the outcome, but that doesn't quiet the voices in my head. 

 I've cleaned my refrigerator, lined all my kitchen cabinets, organized bedrooms, etc.  I also finished the synopsis for the sequel to my novel and have begun outlining the next one.  This helps some, but...
Anyway, please keep your fingers crossed that I get some closure soon. Until next time my friends in the bloggersphere. Happy writing.
