I know that’s a misquote, but it fits better misquoted, okay?
With the encouragement and prodding of my editor at Puddletown, I’ve cleaned up the second manuscript in my series, and submitted it late last night. I think it’s pretty good; now we just have to wait and see what their market reader thinks.
Meanwhile, I’m busily sketching out the rest of the series, and thinking about what I need to do to make the third completed manuscript presentable.
If this is what the life of a novelist is like, I’ll take it. Oh, yes, I will take it.
