Empty Nest Syndrome
I'm truly surprised at the response I got from people to take a look at my WIP. To give you an idea, my last novel had 4 people read it, this one has 10. I know for a fact that this is going to really benefit my work I'm hoping it will give me the edge to finally get my name in print.
I'm entering the hardest phase right now and that is waiting. I've done all I can do, I sent it out last night and told my lovely betas they had one month to read it and come back with opinions/notes. During this one month I can't even look at it. I've got to find something else to write because I'm having withdrawals after finishing last week and not writing. Otherwise this month will consist of me checking my e-mail consistently and on the edge of my seat because someone, somewhere is picking at my baby as we speak.
Well, I guess they say absence makes the heart grow fonder for a reason. I just hope it also makes me grow tougher to prepare for all the seams I'm going to have to go back and snip.
What about you? If you write, what part are you at currently?
