Vacation's Over...

Big, huge, gigantic sigh.

I am NOT ready to be back at work. I haven't been back since the 22nd. And it was very difficult to get up this morning.

But I had a nice vacation.

But you know what? I'm ready. I'm ready to work part-time and spend the other time working on my novels, the novels that I will have contracts for, the novels that will go out on the shelves and people can buy them.

I'm ready.

The question is, how much longer must I wait?

At this point, there's no clear answer in sight. So I must persevere and keep writing!


  1. I hope you don't have to wait long! Fingers crossed.

  2. Keep at it!! You'll get there!!

  3. I keep asking myself the same question. Even if I could just work part time instead of full, I could get so much more writing done...hmm...maybe I should look at the sugar daddy thing again...

  4. Yep, don't we all. But we have to remember we're writing for ourselves as well. And it's something that's not in our control. Only writing the best darned ms we can is, and that's what we have to focus on :-)

  5. I agree with Tess. Focus on the things you can do, and try not to think about the parts that are beyond your control. Concentrate on improving your writing and sending out queries when you finish projects. Let the rest of it go. Once you've done your part, you have no control over what the agents and/or editors you query do, so try not to think about them.

    And yes, I know that's easier said than done. I have the same problem.


I love to hear from you!
