It’s the first Wednesday of the month, which means it’s time to talk about insecurities. Before I do that, I’d like to thank Alex Cavanaugh for hosting this wonderful meme. If you'd like to learn more about it, just click on his name.
This month's IWSG post snuck up on me.
I’m currently in the calm before the storm when it comes to my writing. I’m not a very patient person, but being an author demands patience. While I patiently (cough cough—anxiously) await the first round of edits for my sequel Hold Tight I’ve been keeping myself busy by working on a couple of new projects. I had gotten into a nice flow with one of them when I received a large white envelope that contained the short fiction entries for the SPC Conference I’m speaking at next month. The conference is for aspiring teen writers. I’ve read enough of their stories to know that these students are a very talented group. I’ve also drafted my Key Note speech for this same conference. Come to think of it, I suppose having a few weeks of calm isn’t all that bad. Still, I can’t wait to get started on the revisions for Hold Tight. And, truth be told, I’m dying to hear my editor’s thoughts. I’m hoping she likes the direction I took the story. I’m also a little nervous that the revisions will be overwhelming. I’m glad I have other things to keep me busy, or I would probably drive myself crazy while I wait.
What do you do when you’re in wait-mode?
