I did a big Oops. I forgot to mention the winners of the for the love of gifts giveaway. So let's not keep you waiting:
Leigh T. Moore & Talli Roland!!!!
I've notified them and I'll be sending their gifts out soon!!
I'm also being interviewed today at Alexia's! Be sure to stop and say hi!
So I hit send this wekened. My manuscript is now in email land and soon into an editor's hand (possibly more than one).
It's both terrifying and liberating.
It got me thinking. We are on one hell of a roller coaster. As writer's we put ourselves through a lot of emotion. At the beginning you write said novel. You get stuck. You complete manuscript. You celebrate. You realize agents will hate it if they see it now. So you revise. Several times. You then dream of being on the NY Times Bestseller list. You send your MS out. Feeling confident. You're rejected. You cry your eyes out. You resend (not as confident). They request a full. You cry as you celebrate. They say yes.
Just when you think you've done it that's only the beginning. The getting in part. Once you're in there is more work to be done. As a writer we prepare ourselves for this roller coaster as best as we know how.
We're in it for the long haul. United we stand as writers. So what part of the ride are you on?
