Dear blogworld, I think I'm going crazy. No, not because of my blogging addiction, because of my desire to find an agent. I finished my novel last June. I did one immediate edit of it, then waiting a few months to give myself some space from the project, and then edited through it again. Then, I printed out four copies and gave them to friends and mentors.
Finally, I have the first edited manuscript back. Finally, I'm in the middle of editing it for the last time before I send it off to agents. Finally, I'm looking up agents and researching query letters and every bit of research that I possibly can. But now that I'm so close, it's so hard to wait. I read successful query letters, and I want to write and send mine. I look up agents, and I feel the need to submit to them. It's all I can think about.
But alas, I have to wait. I have to wait, I tell myself, until I finish editing the novel a final time. Until I finish making my list of agents and ordering them. I can't rush into it. I want to. But I cant.
Tell me, fellow blogites, is this something you go through or have gone through? How did you deal with it?
