I admit to being impatient. I want what I want right now. So why did I decide to be a writer? Nothing is timely for an author. The right word eludes me, the character I thought I knew takes a weird action I can’t explain, and the plot twists until I can’t remember how to untangle it. It takes time to write a book. Lots of time and then it needs to be edited.
Don’t remind me what happens when I finally am able to submit it.
So I’m frustrated.
I’m waiting for the cover for my Christmas story, Journey of the Magi. Out of my control and frustrating as heck. I know I’ll probably love it, but I don’t want to wait. Oh my, I sound like a whiney child.
Then there’s my third paranormal. It took me longer to finish than the first two combined. Why? That life stuff happened again.
Ancient Curse is with my editor. She loves it. We’re waiting for the reader to finish so she can send me a contract. Okay, so it’s been a couple months. Take a deep breath. Let it out slowly through your nose.
Then it’s go through the entire process again. Why?
I love writing. I love sharing my stories with a growing audience. My heart thumps when I get a good review or compliment.
Is it worth it? Heck, yes.
