Because today's Sensational Haiku Wednesday theme is royal. Here are my three...
Moms should be treated
like queens, ruling over their
Three naughty princes
spoiled rotten to the core
need taste of pauper
nor navy nor cyan, but
royal. Pen color!
Today is also Insecure Writer Support Group day.
Thank goodness. I need to vent! Look out!
I am feeling mediocre. I'm worried I will have a ton to edit when I get my book back from my editor. (Launch date moved to July 13, btw.) And waiting is sooooooo hard!
I mean, I keep busy. No way do I ever sit still and twiddle my thumbs. To keep my mind off waiting, I'm editing my second MS so I can write a query and submit, critting a couple of other friends' MSs, and rough drafting my sequel. Not to mention all the daily life obstacles.
But my friends always remind me that I'm waiting. "How's the book coming along?" I like that they ask and that they think I'm cool for writing a book, but I must kindly tell them no news. We are still waiting!
I think waiting is worse that rejection. Rejection is over quick like pulling off a bandaid. Waiting, by definition, laaaasssttss looooooooooonger! And it gives me time to think dumb thoughts, and worry if they will retract their offer once the editor sees how terrible it is... wah wah wah.
Ah, well. Enough of my moaning and groaning. Back to work so I can make the waiting less painful.
Thanks for listening!
On to read about your insecurities! That always makes me feel better! Ha!
