Technically, it’s Monday. So what if it’s the middle of the night? Time to look at another angle of what the trouble with writing is. This week, we’re looking at waiting for a response.
I’m just as anxious as anyone to get a response from anyone that’s looking at our work. I’m currently waiting for a response from my editor. And waiting, and waiting, and waiting… Where was I going with this?
Oh, right, it’s difficult to wait. You know when they’re supposed to get back to you, but I can tell you first hand that they don’t always get back to you when they’re supposed to.
I did hear from her, though, when I didn’t get it the day I was originally supposed to get it. She said that she’s been trying to get it done, but she’s taking her time to get it done so it can get the best treatment possible. I was supposed to get it back yesterday. Of course, I didn’t. Still, it is the middle of the night. Maybe she lives in California. It’s not quite midnight there yet…
If I don’t hear from her by next week, I’ll be emailing her. You can bet on that. I’m hoping to hear from her, though. She did email me once apologizing for the delay. Maybe she will again. This is my first time working with any editor, but I trust her. I got a little snippet from her about what she’s done so far, and it’s been a big help.
But that’s the trouble with writing, isn’t it? We’re working with professionals, and we’re anxious to get a response of them. Sometimes, there’s a delay. Don’t worry, just keep in contact with the professional, but don’t bug them too much.
There’s also the fact that you have to pay them, but we’ll save that for another day. Watch for that subject next week!
