I want to thank my friend author Carolyn Brown for the title quote for today. It is so true. As writers, we work our butts off and then we ...wait.
Wait is a four letter word.
We write and then we wait to see if anyone wants to read it. Then we wait to see if they will buy it. Then we wait for revisions. Then we wait for copy edits. We wait for galleys. We wait for author copies. Finally the book is on the shelf, but we wait to see if anyone buys it. Then we wait for a royalty check. Meanwhile we write again and the cycle starts over.
As the song says, "...the wai-aiting is the hard-est part..."
Happy Holidays everyone!
