As a freelance writer, my life is full of waiting. I wait for editors and agents to get back to me on submissions. I wait for the results from contests I've entered and for that ever elusive royalty check.
It doesn't help that my day job--typing manuscripts for other writers--involves waiting for payment to come in after a job is completed.
My strategy is to continue working on other projects and keep the things I'm waiting for in the back of my mind, but they always seem to surface and interrupt my creative flow.
How do all of you deal with the endless waiting?
