I agree with Ms. Parker. The first difference between those-who-write and the rest of our species is that some of us spend hours and hours, wandering in our minds with our fingers tapping out the precious words of a story that we just can’t put down. I think we all have a story to tell, but sitting still to actually do it ends up being kind of a big deal.
Five weeks since the submission launch and I’m still in the waiting place, passing my time poking through my photos and adding famous quotes from authors about writing. I’m dragging the great big literary world into my own little barn and holding for the day that the opposite happens.
