Manuscript… completed.

Filed in pending like a treasure in a hope chest.

Praying I don’t end up an old maid: no agent, no publisher.

Living on standby.

Waiting for transport to book deal heaven or please…no, not the dreaded Depths of Sheol: REJECTION.

Watching the news for what’s flooding, raging or burning.

A wind-up toy falling off the edge.

A balloon losing air; out of control, and all over the place.

Waiting for Spring.

Write from the Heart | Veronica Jorge | A Slice of OrangeHoping for agents, not pennies, from heaven.

Want to be a Weather Girl singing, “Hallelujah, it’s Raining Agents!”

Raining men: second choice.

 

See you next time on February 22nd.

      I had fun writing it, though the nervous hope and expectation of success are very real.

Tell us what you think.
