Email Addiction…

I believe this is a true disorder and alas…I have it. I think the seeds for this problem were lain when I was just a young child. My favorite time growing up was mail time. I’d rush down the driveway to get it even though 99.9% of the time there was nothing for me. But there was always the hope that something would have my name on it…

I pitched a fit when they switched our snail mail route a couple of years ago and our delivery time switched from 1 p.m. to after 4 p.m. and I’m not sure why. The only thing that arrives in the mail is bills and ad flyers, but there is always the hope of something cool…

Now my addiction to mail has spread to email. I have FOUR email accounts, one at school, one at home, one for writing, and a backup! The glorious part of email–you can check it all day, as many times as you want…and you know what? I do! Obsessively. And 99.9% of the time there’s nothing in there but junk advertisements and daily digests from some yahoo groups, but still…there is always the hope…

So what am I hoping for in my email this week? Three covers (Everything Nice, No Recourse, No Regrets), first round edits for No Regrets, a rough draft of my CP’s story (that I’ve been begging her to finish!), and once I resubmit Love’s Recovery (it’s close to finished), I will immediately start looking for a response.

Will I get any of these things? Chances are better for some than others, but…

Isn’t hope a wonderful thing???

    You’ve got mail!
    No, not yet. But soon. I’m doing my last read through now.
    It’s safe to say I’m hating it.
