Home Stretch and Waiting

I hit 30K last night on Stripped! I’m nearly done now. I’m writing the last major scene now and there’s just a small bit after that and the first draft is finished. Yay! Then off to beta and crit and then rewrites and then to my agent.

And then I wait.

I suppose it’s supreme irony that me, one of the least patient people on the planet is now involved in an industry that is all about hurry up and wait.

Goddess is off now on the way to the editors who requested the partial. Now I wait impatiently to hear if they want it or not. But it’s not gonna be fast and I know that. So I now have to pretend like I’m not even thinking about it.

And I’ll send my novella to my agent and she’ll pitch the anth in October and I’ll wait over that too. Just like I’m waiting to hear back on some stuff I sent my editor at Samhain and I wait to hear back from EC too.

Blarg. But I suppose it’s balanced in large part by the very real fact that I’m living my dream. So there.
