duh moment, impatience, slowness of publishing

Another "DUH" Moment

Meet stupid response girl right here.  Yep. That’s me. *waves*

Here’s my latest DUH moment. 

My manuscript has been with publishers since April.  And I’m super impatient to have news — positive or negative.  I just want things to move so I can organize my life and state of mind accordingly.   So, when my agent told me my novel was still out with several publishers, I freaked.  In my mind I was going,  Is this a good sign?  A bad one?  Is there anything I can do to make this go faster?  This is killing me!  Please help!  

Instead, I responded: Why are they so slow? Do they have a lot to read?

Um. Yeah, Katie.  They’re editors at publishing houses.  If they don’t have a lot to read something is really wrong.

No major damage done apart from a major mental eye roll on the part of my agent.  And a nice little facepalm to myself.  Again.

What’s your latest DUH moment?
