Man! I’m in limbo! Well, that’s the way it seems sometimes. Right now, I’m in the middle of a submission campaign. Waiting, waiting, waiting!!! That’s all my life seems to consist of right now. It’s just dangling at the mercy of others. Will they? Won’t they? Will I even hear from them again? It’s the most frustrating thing in the world when you consider the percentage of how many of them will be a yes. The statistics stand at a staggering 100% no at the moment. haha!! That’s not the most encouraging set of statistics in the world, and is enough to make even the most hardened optimist steer towards the cynical side of life.
But all is not lost! There is always hope. That 0.00001% still lurks in the background, waiting to jump out on you when you least expect it! So, what will I do? Well, keep waiting will be first on my list. In the meantime, I have tons of editing to do. And reviews. Being the moderator of the Young Adult Novel Workshop helps keep me busy. Did I mention real life? *Grin* I have several other novels that need to be written. I’ve just decided to scrap the novel I’m working on at the moment for personal reasons. I wanted to write a book four to my Truth Teller series, my baby, but as I stand little chance of getting the first three books published any time in the near future, I will put this aside for now. This story was such a big part of my life for so many years, but I think it’s finally come to an end. It’s time to move on to something new.
It’s nearly the end of the year. My goal this year was to finish my newest novel, Unknown Reality, and bring it to a publishable standard. My aim was to get it submitted before the end of the year, and I have achieved that. Go me! Hehe!! I wonder what next year will have in store for me J
Did you do set yourself any writing goals for this year? I would love to hear them.
