Just heard that my ms finally got there! Yay! Anna at HM&B has told me that she’s swamped this week but she’ll get onto it ASAP. Don’t know quite what ASAP means in M&B land, could be in the next couple of weeks, the next month, the next six months, who knows? But now the angst of wondering if it got there safely has been replaced by the much more general and possibly worse angst of wondering whether they’ll like it or not. Sigh. Such is the life of a writer eh?
On the up side, I can busy myself with Kate and Alex. Yes, I have two other mss that need my attention, but they’re both at that tricky ‘middle stage’, where you’ve got over that first initial ‘new beginning’ glow, and you have to settle into the hard yards of working out their wretched conflicts. Beginnings and black moments, that’s what I love to write and I’m not at either of those points with the other mss. Oh well, I’ll indulge myself with K&A now, though at the moment it’s very difficult keeping those two apart. I shall have to wave my big stick at them and let them know that if they want a nice love scene later they’ll have to behave themselves now. That Alex though, he knows how to get around me. Damn alpha males! 😉
