I’ve never been a particularly patient person. If I want to do something I want to do it now. My brain works quite quickly so it’s hard to slow it down and say hang on a minute; you need to wait for this one!
So why, do I ask myself, have I chosen to participate in the world of publishing? Aka the slowest moving industry ever. Where patience is required by the bucket load! I must be a glutton for punishment.
As I wait for responses from agents, I have to force myself not to keep checking my email for a response. I want my book to be published now not in four years time. Sadly there’s not much I can do but wait for things to happen. Because as Miss Snark wrote There’s glacial … and then there’s agent response times.
Any advice for how I can learn to be more patient?
