Can you think of other P’s associated with publishing?
Panic: Did I send the right cover letter with my manuscript or did I send my grocery list? Did I remember to save that document before my computer crashed?
Polish: wax on, wax off, wax on again. We all know the hours of hair-pulling fun we have to endure to achieve a ready manuscript.
Pioneering: We hack and slash our way through the murky jungle of ‘what publishers want’ in search of that something special, that unique twist, the next best thing since sliced bread (without the clichés).
Poor: It’s a good thing we love to write because we’re certainly not in it for the money.
(Yes, my writing project is sending me a little crazy)
