You know what I really hate? Waiting! And today it seemed like I was stuck forever in limbo, waiting for the pandemic to finally end, waiting for better weather, waiting for my luck to finally turn, and waiting, among other things for KDP to approve the cover I’ve submitted for my upcoming novel. I won’t bore you with technical details, but it seems like that’s harder to achieve for the hardcover and I’m determined to have the hardcover come out before the paperback. Meanwhile I spent a mostly sleepless night reassessing most of my life choices and just feeling overall annoyed and stuck. I woke up to an email telling me what was wrong with my cover, set out to fix it, resubmitted it, and resumed waiting. I painted something to ease my anxiety. I cleaned a little too, cooked some nice pasta for dinner, made a bunch of TikToks. Here’s hoping tomorrow is a better day.
