How long do I have to wait to hear back from skirt! books? I am trying to pretend that it isn’t all I’m thinking about, I’m starting other writing projects and trying not to check email every hour, or at least no more than once every hour. How long do I need to wait before I email Mary Norris again and ask what she thinks? Is this bad manners? What is the protocol? I feel like we were on such a roll for a while and now it feels like nothing is happening! My dad told me to ask the universe for what I want….to think about it every day and to visualize exactly what I want and he says it will come to me. So okay universe, here goes:
I want Dreaming About Water to be published by skirt! books, I want Mary Norris and Nikki Hardin to call and say congratulations, and I want them to offer us an advance so we can pay our contributing writers for their moving, funny, and insightful essays about living with diabetes.
There. done. Come on universe, don’t let me down!
