Forgive me . . . I'm a little strung out on writing topics at the moment. If you have never been "on submission" (this is the period of time where your agent has sent your manuscript out to editors, and you are waiting to hear whether or not some sucker - er, publishing professional will actually pay you money for making things up), let me assure you that it is the most nerve-wracking experience you will ever undergo as a writer.
Except for the querying process, the wait between acceptance and publication, your first bad review, and - well, actually writing. Oh God. Is there any good news? Well, I think the good news is that your nerves will eventually become so damaged, nothing will bother you any more. Writers could be involved in a horrendous car accident, and the only thing they'd be worried about as the ambulance crew is prying them from smoking, twisted metal is whether their laptop or Blackberry survived, in case they miss an important e-mail.
Anyway! Thought I'd post something fun today. For your viewing pleasure:
