I'm glad you enjoyed my presentation. I enjoyed being in your class. Except for when that boy decided to take the tarantula out of the terrarium and put it on Josie's desk. I must say her screaming was a little distracting...
"Handling the wait" is the hardest part of being a writer. Really. It can be very frustrating. But, it teaches you how to be patient like nothing else can. Well, except for children. When or if you have children, Sydney, you'll really learn about patience. Sorry... I'm getting off track. If you like to write and want to be an author, you do have to get good at waiting. But then you can add that to the list of things you are good at!
Go for it, Sydney!
A Really Good Waiting Person
