Meet stupid response girl right here. Yep. That's me. *waves*
My manuscript has been with publishers since April. And I'm super impatient to have news -- positive or negative. I just want things to move so I can organize my life and state of mind accordingly. So, when my agent told me my novel was still out with several publishers, I freaked. In my mind I was going, Is this a good sign? A bad one? Is there anything I can do to make this go faster? This is killing me! Please help!
Instead, I responded: Why are they so slow? Do they have a lot to read?
Um. Yeah, Katie. They're editors at publishing houses. If they don't have a lot to read something is really wrong.
No major damage done apart from a major mental eye roll on the part of my agent. And a nice little facepalm to myself. Again.
What's your latest DUH moment?
