I’ve finished the book, so what’s next? In this case, it’s a waiting game. The book I just finished is actually connected to a book that I’ve submitted to a publisher. Book 1 is still under consideration. I’ve let the editor know that Book 2 is waiting in the wings, so now there’s nothing I can do but wait. The next step will depend on the response. I really like both books. I’m hoping that readers will be able to read them soon.
For the past few days I’ve been getting caught up on all the other things that need my attention like yard work, a broken refrigerator, family birthdays, and I hear there’s an eclipse coming? It feels good to get back on top of things, but as I was weeding my flower garden, I really wished I was inside writing. (Mainly because I hate weeding, and not because a particular story was calling to me.) But a story will soon catch my attention, like they always do.
Until then, cross your fingers on my books’ submissions. Is there anyone else out there who hates waiting? How do you distract yourself to get through it? Any recommendations?
