So after many re-writes, the results of critiques, readings and suggestions the novel is complete. However, there’s still the synopsis and cover letter to write. These must be undertaken with great care, you only have one shot at trying to impress the agent or publisher. Time seems to be swallowed up by constant unsatisfactory stabs at creating the perfect letter when you don’t know what perfect is. Eventually though, everything is lined up and I have now submitted my novel. I’m entering the receiving of rejections phase which I felt prepared for, until I was informed the other day, it took Agatha Christie four years to get The Mysterious Affair at Styles published. Four years? I can’t wait that long!!
But…I am waiting.
