I’ve really done it. Pushed the enter key and sent my little manuscript out into the ether for consideration by a real publishing house. I should feel elated or relieved at the very least but instead I just feel nervous.
What if in all my writing and re-writing and revising and Regina’s copy-edits and my corrections we missed some horrible great big mistake? What if I somehow sent the wrong file?
I just checked. I didn’t.
What if — gulp — she hates it?
What if she hates me?
Can someone please remind me again why I thought writing and submitting a book would be a good idea?
Congratulations and best of luck, Kym! You invented a world and it’s a great accomplishment, no matter what happens. It’s out of your hands and on to someone else’s screen. Time to tell a new story!
Thanks Triple-C! I have to pitch it tomorrow to an editor and Friday to an agent. Well, I guess I don’t have to, but I want to. Still, I’m getting quite nervous!
I’ll be rooting for you – we library writers have to stick together. Your acheivement and progress have given me just the nudge I need to go on and start another screenplay.
Didn’t sell it at Romantic TImes conference but that’s okay. There are a few other possibilitiies. Plus I will soon start on the next one.
Thanks for the support!
And Triple-C–I’m very glad I gave you a nudge!
