Waiting

I’ve learned that a large part of the writer’s life is taken up in waiting.  Currently I have one story submitted to a magazine and am about to submit another.  The submission I made was back in October, but I haven’t heard anything back yet.  With other stories I’ve sent out, it might be 6-8 months before I get a response.

The same is true for querying agents, although internet queries seem to move faster.  I have had responses back within a day (even if it was a form rejection), but even here it could take 2-3 months to get a response.

So if you’re reading this and you want to become an author, or have a story to submit, get use to waiting.  The best way to wait, though, is to get busy with another project or two or three.  Keep producing, keep writing.
