But this past week has been especially grueling in terms of my writing. I have received some "Revise & Resend" requests from different agents with very specific advice. I have been seriously agonizing over the different suggestions. Oh yeah, I've gone through the cycle:
- denial- "pfshhh...I don't need to do that!"
- anger- "what can I punch without breaking it or my hand?"
- bargaining- "what if I just do this?"
- depression- "I can't do this anymore..."
- acceptance- "Okay, I need to get started...again."
Actually, I've gone through that cycle more than once. Maybe even once a day, I don't know. Now I'm oversharing! Great.
Okay, what I am trying to say is that just when I was writing my "I QUIT" emails to my writing partners, things really took a turn for the best. They were there to pick me up, give me solutions to my plot problems, and give me the kick in the pants I needed.
So thank you Emily King, you are a freakin' genius!
And thank you Peggy Eddleman, you are always there!
And thank you Erin Summerill for saying you'd quit with me! Haha, we could become professional paparazzi together and make way more money! :)
Have you ever wanted to quit this writing game only to have your friends come to your rescue?
