I'm talking about submitting a manuscript.
I just sent my 'baby' to my editor.
And what do I do next? I obsess.
I should've tweaked that scene for the twelfth time. Maybe I could have omitted that sentence, maybe even add or delete a whole paragraph? AGAIN.
Help. I can't stop post-editing.
Why oh why did I let my baby go?
Oh yeah. So I can allow the characters to live in the mind of readers. Or, at the least, my editor.
So I've decided to work on the sequel. I love reading series books. So l write'em too. Besides, a character in the book I submitted has a life to live.
And I must write.
I'm just gonna take my mind away from my baby and create another.
Put that submission out of my mind. No need to worry over things I have no control over.
Now I'm biting my nails...waiting is a bitch.
