I'M SENDING MY NOVEL OFF TO A PUBLISHER, WHO WILL REVIEW IT AND MAYBE WANT IT. OR NOT. BUT IN ANY CASE I WON'T KNOW UNTIL PROBABLY NOVEMBER. NOVEMBER, MY FRIENDS. QUITE POSSIBLY LONGER THAN THAT.
I'VE BEEN WORKING ON THIS BOOK FOR A YEAR. I'VE BEEN PLUGGING AWAY AT IT AND NOW I'M SENDING IT OFF TO SOME VERY BUSY HUMAN WHO PROBABLY WON'T HAVE TIME TO LOOK AT IT FOR MONTHS, AND WHO MIGHT HATE THE SYNOPSIS AND NOT EVEN READ PAST THAT. IT'S VERY UNCOMFORTABLE.
I wrote this in all caps, which is obnoxious but I was so stressed out I didn't notice caps lock was on until just now. Such is my current brain.
The lesson I think I learned is that you should write your synopsis first, then pour your heart into a book, because writing the synopsis afterward--while you're also trying to put together everything else to convince someone that your book is worth reading--is awful. So bad that you'll write two paragraphs in all caps.
A queer femme, writing romance and smut.
