Are We There Yet?
And let me tell you, it's driving me crackers. You read all about the need to be patient in this business. How you should forget about it and concentrate on your new, begging to be written, latest potential bestseller (yeah, I know, I am nothing if not an optimist). Well, all I can say is:
YOU TRY IT!
It's impossible. I sit at my computer staring at the little green man on the bottom righthand side of my screen willing him to jump into life. And when he does, and a little box shoots up in the air telling me I have an email, the whole gamut of emotions charge through my head faster than a speeding bullet - ending in utter deflation when the email offers not the life-changing chance of publication but the life-changing chance of a penile enlargement. But, I don't have a penis.....
And the penile thing always amazes me. Do you think anyone, ever, in the entire history of internet spamming has EVER taken them up on this offer??
OK, you might not need the penile enlargement but you sure need the little round things to survive in the world of writing and publishing.
Ok, Amanda. I'm following your order. I might even sneak open one of the you-know-whats I bought recently (okay, I'll admit it, I opened it last night, but didn't get very far).
