One of the hardest things about writing is waiting. There is waiting for a response to an inquiry, waiting for a response to a submission, waiting for editors and artists (who wait for writers, to be fair) and waiting for publication day. Then there is waiting for sales figures and, of course, waiting for money.
Unfortunately, I don’t wait well. I get jumpy and filled with second thoughts, which is a kind of writer’s remorse. With erotica, in particular, there are questions like “is it hot enough?” “is it too kinky?”
Fortunately, while writers wait, they can be writing. If it weren’t for that, it would be hell.
