I used to be good at waiting to hear back on a submission, but that’s because I was still pretty new and pretty ignorant in the way things worked.  Now that I’ve learned a lot in the past few months, the wait gets harder, because I used to not think I had a chance.  Sure there was that little glimmer of maybe, maybe, maybe, but it was a BIG fatty maybe.

Now, I feel like I might actually have a chance.  I understand the publishers I am submitting to (at least to some point), I feel like I understand what my story is supposed to deliver, and I feel like my writing has improved over the past 15 years of writing novel length fiction.

And, when I feel like I have a shot, the waiting really is much harder.
