Manuscript Submission Watch: Day 18

Still no news…. I am both hopeful and worried now. Hopeful that something will be in there, and yet worried it will be a rejection. Torn between anticipation and dread of an answer.

I’m thinking maybe it was optimistic to think there’d be an answer.  Maybe I should stop checking everyday and start checking every other day? I tell myself that but then I look anyway.

Again, I’m telling myself.. everyday without a rejection is a step closer to an acceptance letter… or maybe a letter suggesting that I do some editing. Maybe I’m wrong to think that way, but I can’t help it.

They say it can take up to 90 days… I’m hoping it doesn’t take that long one way or another. 90 days is only a few days before my birthday… I dunno if I could handle the stress. Either I will get an awesome gift of an acceptance, or crushing news of rejection… 

I wonder if it gets easier? Or will I always feel this with every book? Because I do plan on continuing to try no matter what happens with this one. I have like 4 completed manuscripts and several more in various levels of completion, and new ideas pop into my head all the time.

Kawanee was born in Alexandria Louisiana but her first real memories are of Russellville Arkansas. She's always loved to read, and has always had an vivid imagination. She grew up in a house where almost everyone read, they didn't need a TV although she could still be found planted on her butt in front of her grandma's TV watching cartoons on Saturday mornings. She made up her first story with her mother when her cat died; it was about where pets go when they die. She continued to create stories from bad dreams she had and her dad would help her change nightmares to stories. They would sit up in a chair until the scary went away. He told her that: "Dreams, good or bad, are just stories your mind makes up. You are the author of your dreams; if you don't like them rewrite them. " She was hooked and has continued to read and write stories drawing from dreams, sights and just pure imagination. She just recently decided she'd like to try and get published and fail than wonder what if. Her story continues but where it goes from here is up to you, the Reader... She hopes you'll join her in finding out where her journey goes from here!
