I’ve posted before about the quandary of what to do with myself while I wait to hear back from editors. It isn’t their fault that I’m one of those writers who cranks out manuscripts faster than they can deal with them, so I’ve had to find ways to occupy myself in the meantime.
I tried a hobby.
I failed at that. Apparently, I can’t drum up the interest in something else, so I decided to do something I’ve been wanting to do ever since my degree in English Lit–write something literary. At the moment, I’m focusing on short stories, and in between romance novels, I’d really love to get some short stories published in literary journals if I can. Talk about fun!
Don’t worry–Love Inspired novels will still be coming your way. I’m not that easily distracted, I promise. But this does mean that my longsuffering editor will get a break from my pestering while I work on something else until she gets back to me.
I think everybody wins here. 😉
