I know it’s a Lady Gaga song but hey, it’s just crying out to be used as a blog post title too. 😉 And hey, my writing is all crap at the moment so it’s a fitting title. Anyway, I’ve been slack on the blog front. Mainly due to the massive plunge into ‘why do I bother’ territory. Been 11 weeks now since I sent off my two chapters. Not very long really (you really know you’re a writer when 11 weeks becomes ‘not very long’). I kind of hoped I’d hear sooner because two chapters isn’t even a full partial but….well….not as the case may be. Still, I did email her to ask about the New Voices comp and whether I should enter and she did reply. Apparently the experience should be fun and I should give it a go. I don’t know if will yet. Depends on how much of a masochist I am and considering my feelings about writing at the moment, I’m thinking not. But, well, you know me, up and down ALL the time so by September I may be feeling entirely differently.
Oh and the ed told I would be hearing ‘very soon’ about my sub.
Anyone want to take a bet on how long ‘very soon’ is?
In fact, I think I might run a wee sweepstake to help with the NTAI. Post how long you think ‘very soon’ is and the person who guesses the closest to when I hear back will win a prize. Don’t know what that prize may be – probably a book or something. Oh and depending on how long ‘very soon’ is, you may be waiting a while to hear who wins…;-)
Note: Yes, I’m complaining. Yes, I know I should be patient. But a little vent now and then doesn’t hurt. I’m even feeling better now for having done this blog post.
