As an Aries, I love instant gratification. As a novelist, I need to learn patience. Books take so long to write and publishers take a long time getting them into the world. Why am I doing this again? Oh, yeah, because I love to write. Words on the page equals instant gratification. Pages published is quite another thing. This is why I love blogging. Instant publication feels so good. Now to just master the patience needed for the rest of it.
