The leap of faith!!!

So I've done it...I've stepped out and done something that I've been afraid to do for so long and I know you're probably wondering what I'm talking about. I've started to submit my manuscript to some publishing companies and get some feedback on what I am to do next. For those who are reading this and think that I just finished writing my manuscript a couple of days ago well that can't be anymore from the truth. The truth is I finished writing my novel Holy Seduction in the fall of 2007 and haven't really proceeded to do anything or move forward until now. I guess you can say that I was a little nervous about sending it out and hearing what people have to say about my baby but now I am to the point where I want to know what they're going to say. I've been preparing myself for rejections because I know they will come and I have been excited about the number of people who will love my work (because I believe that it's a great story). I am ready to move forward with this whole process and I'm tired of hearing everyone else's negative comments because I'm trying to move along with this. I'm very excited to be entering this phase of the literary process and with this process comes alot of patience because now i have to wait and see what they will say. Either their answers will be yes or no but I'm glad that at least I took this brave step and submitted my story. So stayed tuned to my diary as I travel through the wonderful process of the waiting game...the wonderful world of submissions.

Until next time,
Jessica aka Lyric
