There’s been an encouraging amount of editorial interest in a surprising number of my manuscripts lately. This must be so commonplace for some writers that it doesn’t even register with them, but I’ve never experienced anything like it. I’m doing what I can to stay focused on things I have some control over, but sheesh, it’s not easy.

It helps, oddly, to keep in mind that nothing may come from any of these nibbles. The next thing of mine that sells may turn out to be the thing I’m currently working on, the thing no editor has even seen, so I’d best stick to it.
