I was letting my mind roam during a bit of scene break paralysis last night (sometimes it's hard being a panster), and a niggling bit of discomfort seemed to need solving. I finally realized that I'm in a holding pattern in several areas of my life, and the waiting is starting to get to me.
I have two manuscripts submitted that I should hear back about by the middle of the month. Both are with editors and publishers that I haven't worked with in the past. So no poking, like I can get away with at my current houses, just waiting patiently for news...trying not to stalk my inbox, lol.
I should be grateful that my fam & I don't have the flu, but this nagging, clinging cold that we all shared just isn't going away, three weeks so far and no end in sight. Starting to think we'll never feel healthy again!
My computer is on its last legs but made the decision to wait until after the New Year to buy a replacement.
My next release is in December, so a whole month to go through before that excitement hits. I know, I got spoiled with my 'bing, bing' first two releases. Still...
The list could go on, but in the interest of time, I will cut it off at the top few. I'm normally an extremely patient person, so the light anxiety that I finally diagnosed is really hard to get a handle on. I can keep myself busy (and boy, have I!), but the unresolved items continuously circle in my head like so many vultures.
So who else feels the waiting game anxiety and how do you handle it?
