And to think some writers Fed Ex their submission package to their chosen Agent or Editor. Ha ha ha ha ha ha...hicup..ha ha ha.ha.
They might as well brand a scarlett letter F to their chest. No, it doesn't stand for that 'F'' but rather stands for Fughettaboutit.
How come with all the books I've read and all the people I've met and all the conferences I've attended (I could go on and on here) NO ONE told me how excrutiatingly painful it is to wait for a response?
I mean it's like sending your baby to the bottom of the abyss without a single, tiny bubble to let you know if it's still breathing. Sigh...
I've began the ardous task of plotting my next book (not in the same series) because I read a tweet from an agent the other day who said it's not a good idea to write the sequel to a yet unsold book because the editor may have major changes to the plot. That could mean a major rewrite to your current WIP. I'm not a big fan of rewrites unless I'm editing.
So, start something new...what about that Dystopian female ninja romance ...twinkle is back in my eye, heart is pumping...Submission you say? What submission?
I've forgotten all about it.
