It's hard. Sometimes, damn near impossible.
H.O.W. do I do it? I have ADD and --ohhh look,

H.O.W. to stay calm. Like I said, it's difficult. Especially as a writer where there's so much waiting and uncertainty and wondering and waiting and waiting and waiting.
Like when you send out a query. And wait. And wait. And wait.
Or if you're past that stage and out on submission. Waiting. Waiting. Waiting.
Or when you enter the Utah Chapter RWA Hearts of the West (aka HOW) Writer's Contest. And wait. And wait. And -- what? Wait, WHAT?

Keeping my fingers crossed! If you've got some good news let's hear it!
