Module one

Publishing and all the emotions involved

Getting published can be an emotional rollercoaster. Some might compare it to the excitement of trying to conceive and the wait involved until you see the result of your hard work. Others might say that is similar to applying for a job, working hard to present yourself in a positive and favourable light only to be faced with a long wait to hear the results.

If the thought of any of these situations gets the adrenaline pumping inside you, then you begin to understand how trying to get published will feel. That being said, there is a crucial difference. When you are trying to get a book published you have the full spectrum of emotions to deal with, however, you are required to remain pleasant and not show any signs to agents or publishers that you are not confident in your decisions.
