I’m almost ready. I’m going to do it. Well, maybe I’ll review it one more time.
I’ve been stuck in this endless loop for months now and I’m having trouble finding the courage to leap off the treadmill.
A few months ago I received a request for a partial (first three chapters) plus my synopsis from my dream publisher/line.
But I can’t seem to pull the trigger. I guess a part of me feels, if I never send it in I can’t get rejected. I know I’m being ridiculous. Rejection is about 98% of the game. But there’s something about this particular submission that’s different.
Enough is enough though, I’ve changed my story so many times I’ve lost count. The funniest (or most frustrating) part is that although the story has improved from my original draft, through the endless changes I’ve made to setting, character development and plot, my story has come full circle and I’m pretty much back to my original story arc.
So I’m setting a date. Monday, April 15 2013. See that…bolded, underlined AND italicized. Now you know I mean business. I’m submitting my work no matter what. Fingers crossed.
