When is it an appropriate time to inquire information about your ms from an editor? Is there a time? I am torn about this, it's been twenty-three days, since I received a "I'll be in touch." I know that I am fixating on this but I really need some good news right now. Of course, you are saying to yourself, "What makes you think you are going to receive good news?" I don't. I just need some feedback. It is a very lonely road that a writer travels.
Today is a big day. The husband is going to cut his hair. In most households, this is not an occasion but in my house it is one that I am going to shout from the rooftops! It has officially been five years since he cut it last. Every time I would approach the subject, he would say to me, "But you love long hair on guys." To some extent he is totally right. I love Viggo with his long hair as Aragon. I love Adrian Paul with his long hair in Highlander. My first character in my manuscript Fated Mates has long hair. Here is the thing, these are all fictional characters. There are not many men who can pull this off in real life. Right now, my husband has hair that rivals the long hair of one of EC's Cavemen. I do not want him to get a military cut, dear God no! Just something like Johnny Depp's hair in The Tourist (not that I've seen the movie, don't like Angelina Jolie) but he looked hot in the adds. The hair will be long enough to satisfy my long hair fetish but short enough so he doesn't look like he should be swinging from a vine.
Good weekend to all of you,
