Patience is a Virtue

Growing up in a society that was constantly looking for faster and easier everything. I feel that it has influenced my personality. I want it now. I’ve never been great at waiting but with the novel finished and sending it out to agents and editors, I now find myself anxiously waiting to hear something. I know it takes weeks to hear anything but that doesn’t change the fact that I’m bouncing around wondering what’s happening now. Have they read it? Have they checked out my blog? Looked me up on facebook? Will they take on an unpublished writer? How do we stay sane during the waiting period? Too anxious to focus on writing? I know I have to reign it in and just let things unfold they way they will. Time to get back to what I love, writing. As the old song says: ‘Whatever will be, will be.’
