My Patience Came to an End

I'm not a patient person. So to wait a full month for something that wasn't going to happen, was really stretching myself. I've been wanting to send an e-mail or call for the past week, but I hesitated, just hoping an e-mail would come through. Nothing. So what am I talking about - Freedom's Cry. I've been waiting a full month for news from my editors that the book is finally moving forward. I couldn't wait any longer. So out of patience, I sent an e-mail this morning, and then I went to take a nap as I was up before 3 this morning and I was falling asleep on the computer. When I got up an hour and a half later, there still wasn't a reply, so I hopped around the computer, taking my time and hoping I would get a reply. I finally did. She told me her husband, the other part of the editing team, is still waiting on the review of Freedom's Cry and is looking for other options. Once he gets the review, then it will move forward to publication. Until then, I wait. I hope my sending them an e-mail this morning will put a little fire under them to get it moving. I would like to see Freedom's Cry published before too much longer. Especially in time for Christmas. I would also like to put closure on this series. So now I'll see what happens and how long I will wait on it. I know I've done a review for a person on their book and it didn't take me this long to read and review it. How patient are you? Thanks for reading.

With everybody or only with children? If you are with everybody, you should seek to be a mediator. Many disputes can be resolved, without them reaching the courts, if people who are patient and give a patient listening are around and can analyze and help people come to the right conclusions without deciding for them.

Ordinarily, I'm a fairly patient person. After waiting for something over a long period of time, my blood starts to get a little bit warmer. Then, whoever it is gets notified one last time, in hopes that I don't have use extreme measures. When I finally blow up over an issue, they definitely know that I've reached my peak of tolerance!

I never did get a reply from them, and fired them as my editors and published Freedom's Cry the end of October. I also got a refund, for everything but the cover photo, which belongs to me since I paid for it.
