It's almost two years to the day that I got an offer on my debut novel. Not long after I found out about that offer, I found out the release date: April 2012.
Somehow I had to find a way to make it from September 2010 to April 2012. Honestly, even though logic dictated otherwise, there were many times when it seemed like that month was never. going. to. happen.
Alas, logic did somehow win out over my irrational impatience and April 2012 did, in fact, finally get here.
I got engaged in December 2011 and a short while later had picked out my wedding date: April 2013. It wasn't my first choice for the date but a lot of factors led into it being the choice that made the most sense.
Except for the fact that I am now convinced that April 2013 will never, ever get here either.
As you may know, I love throwing theme parties and I have a lot of things I'm excited about for throwing my wedding themed party. When I'm not totally despairing over how far away the date is, that is.
But, hey, you know what's a great business to get into when you're notoriously impatient? Publishing!
(Oh and if anyone has any tips for making time fly, I will gladly take them.)
