At the end of yesterday, I had a full first draft for The Mungk. Ideally, after some heavy, heavy editing, I can start sending it to potential agents and publishers, and maybe, if I’m lucky, six to nine months after that, I’ll have a deal in place. Then it’s release, marketing, probably mostly by myself, based on what I’ve seen in regards to how publishers help authors market.
Which means building up social media. Which probably means less woe-is-me navel gazing. Things are going to have to change. Still, I can’t help but feel there’s a cold wind blowing across my dreams, a stark reality waiting to chop my head off, a la Ned Stark.
Sometimes, just when you think you’re getting started, you’re actually at the end.
