I’m hoping the dancing part will come later, but for now, it’s the waiting game. In case you missed my news last week, I was a finalist for the Pitch Madness contest and I had six agents interested and ask for pages of Heavyweight (Squee!!). I spent my weekend tightening things up and double and triple checking them before hitting the send button.
Now I wait. And wait. And wait.
I completely understand that the agents are busy and have huge piles of stuff to read through. I know it will take time for responses, but my problem is how do I focus on other things and not constantly check my email for that magical golden ticket? I have projects to work on, things to finish, but all I can think about is “Are they reading it? Do they like it? Might this be my big break?!”
I think I might take up pacing, or thumb twiddling. Perhaps I’ll count ceiling tiles!
Any ideas for focusing?
