What's a literary emergency?

It’s when your agent emails you a long list of things that an editor interested in your book wants and you think to yourself, “Awesome! I should be able to get that knocked out in the next three or four days.” And then you read that you have to have it all done by 6pm and it’s already 3pm.

I got it all taken care of. With more time, I could have done a better job, but it is what it is. Plus, instead of hanging over my head for a few days, it was only there for a few (very intense) hours.

My proposal has made it several steps into a few publishing houses and I’ve got my fingers crossed. I really can’t think of a better Christmas present. Anyhow, I don’t like to get my hopes up or jinx myself by writing about it. So, I’ll stop.
