Kicking My Baby Out of The Nest

8 03 2011

After the writing of the original a year ago and feeling that the short that I wrote could be good enough for publication, months of talking myself into giving it a go, more months of re-writes and polishing, four readers and and an amazing few edits by Shae later… I’m finally ready to send this off to the publisher to see how it goes.

Writing a two paragraph blurb and a one to two page synopsis of my novella was almost more difficult than the writing of the novella itself. After living with the storyline so long and knowing all the ins and outs of the plot, it was hard to distill it down to two pages and then further down to two paragraphs. And I thought revisions and editing was hard.

I’ve received an email from the publisher that they’ve received it and it will be assigned to an editor to be evaluated.

Let the indigestion begin.

Wish me luck!
