Today is the day I've been excited for and dreading for the last year: I'm sending out my first round of queries.
Heartshire High is one of those projects that doesn't seem to end. Every time I feel that it's finished, I feel good for a day, and then dread creeps up on me and I'm filled with doubts. I open it, just to look and make sure that it's really done, and I see a million little things I want to change. Then big things.
The worst is when I make all the changes and then I just want to change it back because I haven't improved it. I know that I'll always be able to change it, and I'll always wonder if there's something I could do to make it even better.
But it's time to put it out in the world. I am scared! If nobody likes it, I'll have to make drastic changes before I continue the process. Cross your fingers - I'm jumping down the rabbit hole!
I'm a high school senior who loves to read, write, read about writing, and write about reading. My first novel, Heartshire High, is out now!
