Check out this blog post from Writer Unboxed by Allison Winn Scotch about the dreaded Waiting Game. I’m in a similar position right now, waiting on a agent to read my manuscript and decide if she wants to represent me. I took Allison’s advice – I’m starting a new project. That way, if Agent likes my book, I’ve got a second one on the way that she can work on selling. If Agent doesn’t like my book, I’m in the midst of a project and won’t have time to grieve over missing that first opportunity.
How about you? What do you do during the Waiting Game? Crying, coffee, and chocolates are a given, but what else?
