H is for Hope


Each new WIP begins with hope. 

We write the first draft hoping the words flow. We send it off to our CP's and hope they'll enjoy it. We edit with the hope that this draft will be the query-ready one. 

Then comes when day when the book is written, the editing is complete and the query and synopsis revised. We send our book baby into the world. And we wait. 

And, as we wait, we hope.

Without hope, I doubt many of us would still be writing. It's a vital part of writing.

Great post!

Hope is the perfect word for "H" day. Excellent, Lindsay.
