I have had two queries out for two days and what a stark raving lunatic they make me.
I have checked my email incessantly since. And frankly, there are only so many visits a person can make to the bathroom before it gets weird.
I have done this before. Twenty times to be exact, but this first go on the second round feels so vital. I really need just one response to to break the tension and let it ride.
I swear it. One response and I’ll let it ride. I will query and wait like a respectable writer.
This includes a good scotch, typewriter and a tilted fedora.
More like coffee, soft spoken sarcasm and flannel.
