Knocking on Wood With Fingers Crossed

First five queries sent--four via e-mail, one via regular mail. This should become my Friday ritual.

Let the obsessive e-mail checking begin!


  1. Don't I know it about the email checking. And then, when my gmail pops up with the little blue box saying Re: QUERY . . . my heart just leaps in my throat.

  2. Yes, don't we just love the digital age? =)

    At least emails won't give you a papercut, though.


If you don't feel that you are possibly on the edge of humiliating yourself, of losing control of the whole thing, then possibly what you are doing isn't very vital. If you don't feel like you are writing somewhat over your head, why do it? If you don't have some doubt of your authority to tell this story, then you are not trying to tell enough. --John Irving
