This ride I've been on has taken me on a lot of twists and turns. I think it's the same and different for all of us who are trying to do this very same thing. I try to keep a calm exterior and let the world know that I understand the real possibility they could say no. Inside it's a whole other story. I'm dying to hear the simple words "We want to sign you." I'm excited beyond belief and I want to scream at the top of my lungs. I can't though. I'm too afraid to sound cocky and too afraid to jinx it.
More likely than not they will because I'm a first time writer. No one wants to take a chance on an unknown. I don't understand this all the way. I mean isn't everyone an unknown until someone gives them a shot? You have to find an editor who falls in love with your work. At least that's what I've been told. My single question is how d you make someone fall in love with your work? I think it's like falling in love...you can't force it.. Love is something that just happens. It isn't forced or coaxed into a person's soul.
For now, I will continue to hope and pray. I'll keep a smile on my face. I mean after all, they didn't have to request to read it at all. They could have laughed my agent out the door. Who knows what will happen?
