Where to begin...is always the first question that comes to mind while writing this post. Doubt? Me? Let me tell ya...
The waiting game. Yup, patience is a virtue and I'm all over the place. The time is ticking on a full. The only one out there in the hands of someone I don't even know. Not really. I don't even know what she looks like. Her name haunts my waking hours and my dreams. She's going to love it! She's going to hate it! She's going to offer positive feedback. She's going to give me a form R. She's never going to respond. Jeeze, I can go mad just thinking about it. Then, like if that's not grounds enough to seek therapy, that one is contemporary while the next one is horror. So what do I do when she calls and asks about my next project? Because you know she will, right? Do I tell her that my heart is leaning towards the supernatural horror and not entirely with contemporary? Or should I take out that contemporary story I started three months ago and start writing it just in case? And then, yes there's more, do I completely file away that contemporary after it has garnered the most request or do I keep going with it?
Yeah, I know questions, questions, and more questions. It reminds me of my son when he was about three and his favorite question was "why?" Why does that work like that? Why do you have to do that? Why? Why? Why?
I have so misplaced my sanity. Has anyone found it somewhere?
