First Wednesday of the month. :) Time for Insecure Writer's Support Group. Check out the others here.
I am in the middle of the waiting game. (As I know many of us are.) And I'm fine with it, really I am. I have other projects I'm working on, plus, ya' know, real life to keep me busy. What I don't like is having to answer the "So, have you heard anything yet?" questions.
I know people are curious, and excited for me, but it always makes me feel like a bit of a disappointment. "Nope, nothing yet," I say. I try to explain that it is totally normal to wait months for a response, but I know (to some) it sounds like bull. If they were interested, surely I'd have heard something, right? And while I can tell myself (and believe it) that that's not really the case, I still feel uncomfortable when asked what the status is on my submissions.
Does anyone else feel that way, or are you all so cool and confident it just doesn't get to you? ;) I wish I was that way.
