I want to hear your story. Where are you? What are you doing? What are you working on and how much do you:
a. love it
b. hate it
c. feel certain it's the Next Big Thing
d. wonder why you started writing in the first place
You might notice with the above options I've given you no middle ground, no gray. Well, is it just me or do you too have a love hate relationship with your piece? Like some days you're just plowing through a field of weeds, no dream in sight but then, right behind a particularly nasty bramble, it's there. Your desert flower.
Hot and cold. Despair and joy. That roller coaster that makes you sick, sick, sick but you don't have the ability to get off.
Are you on submission? Do you have a query out to that agent you can't stop stalking? Do you have 50 queries out? Are you finishing your first MS? Your eighth? Where are you? How are you dealing? Do you ever feel alone? Connected to more people than your little introverted self can manage?
I want to know--I need to know. Let's commiserate, wallow, roll around in the mud. Let's shout from the roof tops, sing Beethoven's 9th, dance with joy.
Where are you?
