First Wednesday of the month, so you know what that means. It's time for the Insecure Writer's Support Group!
Can you believe it's the 2 year anniversary for the IWSG? That kind of blows my mind. Mostly because I always think (and it feels like) I’ve only been blogging for two years, so when I see something that proves I’ve been doing it longer, it kind of blows my mind.
Writing is like that too, sometimes. Querying especially, I think. Because you're querying, abut you're also (hopefully) writing the next manuscript as well, so by the time you look up, hell a whole year of querying has gone by. Maybe more, if you had to stop in the middle for an R&R or something else.
It doesn't seem so crazy, then, when you hear that it took people, 7, 8 or even 10 years to land an agent.
Some people see those numbers and they freak out, or get depressed. I just kind of shrug my shoulders. Because, I mean, their journey is not YOUR journey, you know? And also, that time is going to pass anyway, so you might as well keep writing, you know?
