And it was a very good letter asking to see three chapters and a synopsis. Snail mail, not email. There was a line about replies taking 3 or 5 months. Which is okay, because that’s about a semester, which is due to begin soon.
And my horoscope this month says to really be calm and professional and not to rush but give myself time to shine and nail this opportunity. Which is the exact opposite of what I usually do which is send requested material off in a mad rush.
It says a lot of other stuff that relates to this golden opportunity. This is apparently my month to go for it, career-wise and show the higher ups just what I can do. Did you get your horoscope from Susan this month?
You can find the writing advice if you just look for it. Sometimes it’s right out there, sometimes it’s between the lines. But every month, for me, there’s something there. Maybe I’ll do a little “writer’s advice for all 12 signs” next. Well, the 11 I have neglected here at least.
