My Second Full Request!!!

So excited I am literally dancing!!!

I've had a crappy week... A tired week... One of those weeks where I just kept asking myself, "If I had known how horrible and long and powerless this publishing process was going to be, would I have even written my manuscript in the first place?" I wouldn't have; I had convinced myself that by Wednesday night.

By Friday afternoon, I checked my email, expecting to find a standard rejection or some other reason to feel sorry for myself. (My poor husband... He's had a rough week, too!) To my surprise, I actually found my SECOND FULL REQUEST instead. From another amazing agent in NYC, and... Well, it's funny. Suddenly, I have two fulls out, and suddenly, all that horrible and long and powerless crap doesn't seem so overwhelming.

Amazing how fickle this industry is, and amazing how fickle WE are as aspiring writers. I feel bipolar all of a sudden, but I'm going to ride this high as long as I can.... :)

Haha! Do ride the high, Lisa! We're all neurotic like that, I promise. It's part of the rite of passage into writerdom. In fact, that picture you posted perfectly exemplifies our inner moods. Hee.

Congratulations, that's WONDERFUL! Please keep us posted. Oh, and aren't husbands the best? Mine has been my rock through seven years of this trying to get pubbed biz. I don't think I would've made it this far without him. I'm dedicating ALL of my books to him always. Fingers crossed for you!

Good news for you! I still haven't decided if I'm going to try the agent route before I self-publish. I'm not sure I'm up for the waiting and rejection involved. It does seem like a cycle designed to make even the most even-keeled develop anxiety disorders. :)
