Yes, a Pity Party

When I started this blog I wanted to promise myself I wouldn't use it as an avenue for frequent pity parties... "oh woe is me" "I'm not published yet" "wha, wha, wha" I didn't want to be be one of those glum schmucks who complains about not getting her way and how "its so hard... blah, blah, blah." Cause, of course its going to be hard, right? Right. But since no one is currently following this blog anyway, and because I'm super stressed out right now, and damn it, because I HAVEN'T FREAKIN' COMPLAINED IN SO FREAKIN' LONG ITS RIDICULOUS, I'm going thoroughly enjoy eating this really-bad-for-me Nutter Butter bar right now and have a pity party.

I'm going to go eat another Nutter Butter.

Big Gulps, eh?

My aunt (the amazing former New York City editor), is editing portions of my book right now. The other day, I got a facebook message from my uncle saying he had some material to send me and wanted to know my address. I gave it to him, delighted that I was finally going to get some feedback! It'd been so long since I'd heard from my aunt, that I thought she'd forgotten about me.

Not so.

My uncle informed me that it was his fault it was taking so long to get the material to me. He said he was supposed to send it earlier, but was "trying to spare me" a little longer. Apparently my aunt is a brutal editor. He said he gets walloped every time she edits his work.

Big gulps.

Yeah, maybe now not so much "delighted" that my stuff is being returned to me as "dreading". Is it too much to ask that she might have something GOOD to say about my work?? [Fingers tightly crossed]. Stay tuned.
