The Waiting Game

   There is nothing like the thrill of 'the call' and signing your first contract. Unless it's the third and the fourth, etc. The shock is simply amazing. It takes days, actually weeks, to come down to earth. Each new step in the process is exciting and a little scary. Will I do it right? My insecurities are showing.
   One morning, you open your e-mail and there is the editorial letter. How many pages? Less than two. Not too bad. Nothing big, just minor stuff. Revisions sent back and accepted. Yeah.
   Now I'm in another waiting period. Waiting to see my manuscript in print. Is that when it becomes real? I'm waiting to see.

How exciting-----and nerve-wracking it must be! We're all proud of your accomplishment, though--it "sort of" spills over on us all as supporters and friends.

I hope it's becoming more real with each day. Hopefully, we will see a lot of this kind of reward and excitement in our group this year.

You are sooooooo deserving--it could not have happened to a nicer, more deserving person.
