the how of writing

the width of a postage stamp

So, I’ve finished everything I think I need for this particular submission.  Now that I’m this close, I’m starting to get pre-mailing jitters.  You know, the kind that make you want to tear through your manuscript and make sure every single word is exactly as you want it.  It never will be.  It makes for a good excuse not to mail it, though.  I’ve read the sample through to make sure there are no errors and that’s enough.

I have to remind myself that the difference between a published and an unpublished author is the width of a postage stamp.  I’m almost to the point of chanting it.

I’ve done a fair amount of research.  I like and respect the publisher I’ve chosen for this submission.  I know I’m probably not going to get priority like someone with a good agent would, but that’s okay for now.  We’ll see if they like what I’ve written.  It’s been years since I’ve done this, but I think it’s time.

More later.
