...Have sent CALLIE'S ANGEL out to both my critique partner and a beta reader.
Now the nervewracking part begins. Or at least the FIRST nervewracking part.
You know. The one BEFORE you send it out to the Gatekeepers.
I've already gone from, "Man, this is a great story" to "Who in hell is going to want to read this?"
Writers will recognize this syndrome instantly. And they will also recognize how fast it happens. (!)
Usually, if the writer has done her job somewhat right...she'll swing back toward "Man, this is a great story" again. At least she can get as far as, "OK, not bad. Maybe even good."
Then the comments will come back, and she'll need chocolate.
Hopefully, that will coincide with when the CWC can actually HAVE chocolate again...AFTER Lent is over.
One more week...(ayeeee)
