I took a step forward in my journey to becoming a published writer this week. I hit send and released my manuscript into the great unknown. I have every confidence in my story, I allowed other eyes to cross-examine it before taking this chance, but I don’t think it will ever stop being terrifying that somewhere out there an editor can decide your fate. There’s only a slim chance that it will work out but one in a million is all it takes. And so, the waiting game begins.
