December 2nd, 2010: The Waiting Game
IT’S strange, how the years get away from you. As I leave 2010 behind, I honestly thought I’d be enjoying different circumstances by this point in my life. I figured I’d have a novel under my belt, and that my other novel work would find a home. The rejections have said otherwise, and honestly, the biggest heartache isn’t the rejections alone, but the protracted waiting game. I’d heard the expression “glacial pace” previously, but I never figured I’d be an object lesson in that.
Honestly, 2011 doesn’t owe me anything, but as I hit 45 next year, I’m really hoping it’s a brighter go of things. I really wish I could announce “I sold a novel!” But if I don’t, there’s always 2012 and whatever lies in wait after that. I mean, I may be frustrated, but I’m far from ready to throw in the towel.
