I had something on my to do list that I've been struggling with. I had to put together proposals for my novel, #RomanceLikeADirtRoad. It's been revised. A lot. It's been edited, repeatedly. And I was given an opportunity to submit my book to two publishers.
Writing a proposal was difficult. Well, actually it was just learning another way to write the story I've already written. There were lots of little components to it. Back cover copy. Author bio. Synopsis. I had no idea what these things were. My search engine became my best friend again. The #writingcommunity on twitter offered advice. And I just kept trying.
And today, I sent out my proposals!
I have to say that I'm so excited, I may puke. No. I'm so nervous, I could leap as the girl in the picture above. Yeah. That about sums it up. My emotions are overwhelming, but there's a undercurrent of peace, satisfaction.
I've done what was put in front of me. I've done my best, which is a lot better than when I first started. I've worked through many roadblocks.
And my book is in the hands of the Almighty.
If the publishers love it and snatch this author up, it's in His hands. If they despise it, it's in His hands. If it's not a good fit, it's all a part of His plan.
So, how am I feeling? Like a jittery, peaceful, exultant, calm girl who just did something really hard that I was created to do. I'll let you know when I hear back from the publishing houses.
