Excuse me while I jump for joy and screech a little bit but I’m seriously excited about this!!
I have an actual editor!
This feels like a big step forward in the quest to become published. And I genuinely couldn’t be more excited to read the comments and ideas that are going to be put forward. I literally feel like a kid at Christmas! I only sent it off yesterday so I’ve got a bit of a wait now…
The question is, what do I do now? I spend most of my time tinkering with that manuscript. And now I can’t, because it’s being edited so I really need to leave it alone.
Yesterday I attempted to start designing a cover for it. Big mistake! That is one I am going to leave to someone who can actually use photoshop. Luckily I have a friend who is a photographer and has agreed to have a look at it for me.
So with regards to this project, it’s now basically a waiting game. Did I ever happen to mention I am unbelievably impatient?
It’s not all bad though, because the break from my current book gives me the chance to start on the next one. And since my mind is already so full of ideas I literally woke up in the middle of the night trying to decide if that one is worth scribbling down, I reckon I can keep myself busy for a few weeks. At least I hope I can!
