Nurves after Submission

Let the wait begin. Time to bite my nails (thank god I no longer have that habit 😀 ) I followed my steps.

What steps? You may ask. My writing steps.

I used my tools, followed my plan and put the nuts and bolts to work.

In other words, I wrote a story. You have an idea of the story as I included the outline in my “Planning” post.

Although, the story did change from the outline somewhat. That’s to be expected. Outline are a suggested path not a set-in-stone map where if you take a uncharted road you may drive off a cliff.

So, the story has been conceptualize, written and edited to a polished work.

I had a specific publication in mind for this short story, so I made sure to read some of the work they accepted in the past and tailored this piece to their proffered tone.

Then I read the submission guidelines very carefully (okay, It was more than once).

I also tried to find the name of the specific person I would address the submission to.

Then after a long and agonizing wait, I pressed send (making sure the attachment was included).

Then, ding went my inbox.

“we received your submission”

YAY, now I can start to slowly go out of my mind waiting to hear if It is accepted for publication or not. (you people saying my mind went a long time ago be quiet)

Fingers crossed everyone.

Okay now that I said all that. I have had a lot of comments about the outline I posted, I will make you a deal. If it accepted then I will post the publication link when I get it. If not I will post the whole story here for everyone to read.

So, is there anything that makes you bite your nails?
