Icing on the cake.

Actually sent off my manuscript yesterday, and now I’m nervous and excited and can’t wait to hear what they think about it. I don’t know what scares me more, them rejecting it or them offering me a contract. I’ve been writing stories since I can remember and making up stories longer than that. I have always had the idea that I would one day write and publish a novel, but I didn’t want it this much until I discovered lesbian fiction. Suddenly I knew exactly what it was that I wanted to write. So I wrote.

Now after finishing this novel, I don’t think I will work on any longer novel for at least a couple of months. Instead I have two short stories that I want to play around with, and also a short story for a submission call over at Ylva Publishing┬áthat I really would like to write something for. Either way, I really want to start my little career as an author now. I have no great hopes of being a “successful” author, whatever that means. If at least a couple of people like my novel it’ll be good enough for me. Anything else is icing on the cake.
