Okay, sorry about the whinging last post guys. Guess the pressure got to me and I was just letting off steam. Thanks to everyone who posted encouraging comments – felt much better after reading those! I think learning to wait is the hardest part of this journey for me. I’ve never been good with being patient and being a newbie when it comes to submission, it’s very difficult to come to grips with. Then again, I am very, very lucky that I have come this far. Being fixated on this one goal, I often don’t appreciate how far that actually is. But I am appreciative. Honestly. I’m just at the point where where I want the whole drawn-out process to end one way or another.
Anyway, you’ll all be pleased to know that I have stopped whining and have put up this virtual scarecrow to scare away the Crows of Doubt that have been pecking at me for the past week. This week I am not going to think about my ms or what’s happening to it. This week I am going to concentrate on Kate and Alex and fixing the problem in Chapter 5 that is bogging me down. Of course that means rewriting chapters 5, 6 and 7 but am I daunted? No! I am determined to finish this so I have a third ms to fire at them if I am rejected this time.
Oh and I sent away my comeptition entries too.
So, here’s to Not Thinking About It. Anyone else NTAI?
