I've hit a mountain.
I was going to say 'roadblock' but 'mountain' describes it much better.
I finally got a request for a full manuscript from an editor who's interested at a NYC publisher...
So, what's the problem?
I found a few holes in my manuscript, and I won't kill my chances at finally being published by submitting anything that isn't my best.
I'm working on a spreadsheet to find those holes and have chipped away at the mountain, but I'm having doubts.
I imagine that everyone has doubts about their work at times, and maybe it's first time jitters. (I'm a virgin! Er...in being published.)
The carrot is dangling in front of me, I need to beat the donkey and finish these revisions.
