Multi-published author, Lisa Amstutz, offers a helpful post for writers who are trying to traditionally publish their first book and experience long periods of time waiting for answers.
[Let me interject that published authors wait, too. In fact, I double dare you to find a published author that doesn't!]
Remember Newton's first law, "...a body in motion stays in motion?" It was meant to describe a physics concept but it also applies to writers -- pre-published and published. We must keep moving toward our goals. Lisa helps us realize there are many ways to augment the goal of debut and sharpen our skills and connections in the process.
What do you do while waiting that augments your career?
