The Wait

This is an ode to my editor Anne... whilst she slaves away editing line after line and word after word of the entire 175 pages of my manuscript, I pace. I fill the time with necessary filler of locating a printer for my brick-and-mortar release, write catchy synopsis, build The Legend website, put together a Book Sheet, ponder the implications of the ISBN number, and create a release calendar for these final months. But in the back of my head I'm always wondering, how bloody with edits will it look like when I get it? What is she doing now? What page is she on? Is it wrong to want to watch her edit it? Patience, they say is a virtue...

By the way, the answer to that last question is yes. 

And now I pace.
