I know I've said this before, but the patience required of a writer is nothing less than cruel and unusual punishment! I currently have a couple submissions under consideration from publishers and the long wait for acceptance (or rejection) is brutal. Sometimes I'm lucky and get a quick response. I love those fast responders! Efficiency is near and dear to my heart and I simply can't stand when my submissions are mishandled, as one recently was by a certain large erotic e-publisher who shall remain nameless. Needless to say, I'll never send them another thing.
Speaking of time, I got the coolest calendar from a friend. It's called Porn for Women and features half-naked men doing housework. Now that's my kind of erotica!
