Really starting to feel a bit anxious this month, with my novel sitting in open submission limbo. On my good days, I tell myself no news is good news, and that if they didn't send an immediate rejection then it means they're giving it serious consideration. On my bad days, I tell myself the exact opposite, and that they're saving the form letter rejections for last.
In the immortal words of Homer J. Simpson, "Ahh, the waiting game sucks. Let's play Hungry Hungry Hippos!"
As for my plan to slip into a pseudonym and let my imagination run loose, I'm procrastinating a bit on the actual writing (story of my life), but I do have 4 pages of densely handwritten notes laying out the first novella of my weird little pulp adventure saga. I'm excited by the story, and already have ideas for 2 more in the series, I just need to get that first scene committed to paper and open the floodgates.
