I am currently very close, very very close, to submitting, so I have the jitters. I always get the jitters at such times, and the jitters lead me to procrastinate and stick my proverbial head in the proverbial sand. So I have been sitting on my final alterations to the first three chapters of my children’s book for over a week *sigh*. I even have my synopsis and letters all sorted. In fact, I should really be working on the final edits now. Instead, I am writing this. And during the last week, instead of just cracking on with those edits, I have… planted bulbs in the garden,
While doing all of the above, I have been able to partially ignore the jitters, which is good as the jitters make me feel… well, just too blooming jittery! However, now is the time to face the little blighters. So, I am going to hoist my head up out of the sand, shake the grains out of my ears, give my nose a good blow and get on with it… well, maybe I’ll just wash up first.
Does submitting give you the jitters?
