Erin M. Kinch’s musings upon the writing profession

Submissions: The Waiting Game

For the first time since… I guess last spring… I have a couple of things out on submission. And there is one more that I queried about that I’m hoping to send out soon.

I had forgotten that feeling of anticipation mixed with panic. I’d forgotten the urge to check your email twenty times a day in the vain hope that an editor has gotten back to you.

It feels good, but it is also somewhat crazy-making.

Why do we do this, again? Oh yeah… because the stories would eat holes in our brain if we didn’t.

    Yep, I’m playing the waiting game, too! Good luck to us both! :-D
