It Is Me

"Experience is what you get when you don't get what you want."

Today, I'm sharing a blog post that I could have written myself. Replace '15 months' with '8 months' and strike the part about making it all the way to acquistions, and Natalie Whipple is channeling me. In all the frustration and fear and apathy that stalk the writer-in-waiting.

What Happens When It Is You

(And for the record, when I signed with Tamar Rydzinski, she told me to be patient because she had sold a book as long as 6 months after sending it on submission. So it's not like I've done nothing for her--I'm at 8 months and still going, which gives her an even better number to persuade her writers into patience.)
