The worse thing that could happen to me today would be that my manuscript has been rejected. I am waiting patiently to here is the mystery I wrote during the Nano writing contest will be excepted by a publisher I sent it to. The suspense is really getting to me. But I guess the longer it takes the better it is. They did not receive it and take a peek at it . Then send me a rejection notice.
I have spent a long time going back over it chapter by chapter and finally got to the point were I was finding an error in every sentence. So it was time to stop. I do not know how many writers have done that before . But I know the more I try to be sure everything is perfect in my story the more I mess with it the worse it gets. I even find myself questioning what I should or should not have capitalized.
Usually I write the story. Then I put it away for a day or two. Then I go back and check the spelling. then read it again to be sure it sounds right. Then I put it away for another day. Then back out it comes for grammar and punctuation. Then if I am smart that is when I summit it. If I don’t I am going to be in trouble because the more I mess with it the worse it gets.
The best thing that could happen to me today is that i would get an email telling me they have excepted my manuscript. Either way they will make up their minds sooner or later. It will be published eventually that much I am sure of. In the mean time I will continue to write something every day. I will continue to learn something new everyday and be happy .
