Except for the constant stream of rejection, I think the waiting has to be the hardest part of being a writer. Maybe that and the sacrificing time with friends and family to write. And the lack of sleep. And crying when you kill off one of your favorite characters. And being frustrated when a story just isn't working out right...
Anyways, I'm still waiting. I have to say, so far, I'm completely surprised by who has shown an interest in the manuscript and who hasn't. The agents I thought were likely to request it haven't and the agents who I thought were longshots asked to see more. We'll see if that trend continues. Until then, another Hawaii photo. So pretty. So so peaceful.
