Here I stand with my toes curled over the edge of the diving board (they aren't that hairy in real life). I feel the anti-slip adhesive gripping the soles of my feet, but I’m pretty sure it can’t save me once I decide to jump. I can think of no reason to postpone but—FEAR!
It took me four years to write my MS. One year to edit it. Six months to research agents. And another six months to write a query and a synopsis. (Some of that time overlaps—so it is 5 years total. Holy Cow!)
But it is time! I can think of no reason to postpone querying but—FEAR! So today I’m hitting the first send button. I know it will be painful and hopefully rewarding, but if I don’t succeed yet at least I will learn something :)
This is how I wish I looked while querying.
This is more how I actually look :)
I hope I don’t do this.
I wish I felt like this.
But I feel more like this.
If I could execute like this…I would be a happy diver!
Please say a pray for me—whether you believe in that kind of thing or not :)
