The vet came yesterday. He had me walk my sweet Zelda around. Just a few steps. He's encouraged. She still isn't out of the woods yet, but we're hopeful. She probably will never be able to be ridden again. And when she gets better, after we turn her back out into the pasture she could damage it again irreparably. So for the rest of her life, I'll probably be on pins and needles. He said it's like an athlete injuring a leg. The athlete never knows if the leg will hold up until he gets back out there and plays the game.
That made me think of writing. Yesterday, I tried to make every excuse in the book to avoid sending a query out. But then the vet made me think of just getting out there and doing it. I sent two. WOOHOO! The icy waters I put myself melted away.
It felt really good after hitting the send button. I did forget to add that I wanted to query simultaneously though. Shouldn't I stop until hearing from these two and then pick it back up again? After adding the sentence I overlooked, of course. Providing one of these two agents say nn nn no. UGH! That word has NO place in a writer's vocabulary.
Thanks for all the responses I had yesterday. It does a writer good. :) And thanks for all the good wishes for Zelda. She loved hearing about them. :)
