In December, I completed my Work In Progress. The *real* work started after that.
I read it, edited, re-read then edited again.
CPs read the MS and gave priceless advice. I edited, re-read, edited.
Rinse and repeat. Ad nauseam.
I perfected my query with my Betas’ help to the point of tripping their gag reflex.
The synopsis is in the can. The agents and agencies researched until I could tell you what toilet paper they prefer.
The manuscript is polished and shiny. It is ready.
That is when I hit a wall.
Once again, this is not my first rodeo. I have been down the road leading to Published Author before. It is a process, a journey and a valued education. But the ultimate destination has proved elusive so far.
So why can’t I take that first step down the road to Query and submit this MS to the agents?
Easy question, easily answered.
How do you handle this wretched fear?
