It wasn’t my novel. No, that one isn’t quite ready. This was a little story that I wrote while Lucy, my first novel, was visiting with my beta readers. It isn’t much, and I am not emotionally attached.
Okay, I didn’t think that I was attached until I hit “send.” Then it became my little baby. The first day of kindergarten all over again.
Will it be safe?
Did the internet work? (I must digress here to point out I have been designing web pages since 1994 aka the Gray Period. I know the web works.)
Will it come back to me rejected?
That is the real question isn’t it. Twelve weeks begins now…
