How to Cope with Anxiety and Overwhelm using Fractals by Nina Harrington

Betcha thought we’d lost our marbles. Fractals? Romance writing? Carrie, you’ve gone over the deep end! Hang on, before you send me to the rubber room read Nina Harrington‘s post first!

Imagine that you are building up the courage to submit your romance novel to a literary agent.

This is your first full length novel and until now the only people to have read it are your two pals who agreed to be beta-readers.

Suddenly the whole submission process spins into overwhelm and takes over your life.

You had no idea that you would feel physically sick with emotional turmoil at the thought that someone else is going to judge this book you have slaved over and cared about for years.

What if it is rejected? What if they ask for a full manuscript? And how long will you have to wait for a reply?

This is driving you crazy! Submitting this book has been on your New Year resolution list for two years running. You have rewritten the text through two NaNoWriMo sessions, edited the third draft and incorporated the feedback from all of your pals.
