If you show someone something you've written, you give them a sharpened stake, lie down in your coffin, and say, 'When you're ready'. - David MitchellI handed over my manuscript to my critique partners last week, it’s been a long ass week.  I am a curious person by nature, I love to be in the know, so it’s extremely hard for me not to be asking questions about how their reading progress is going.  I’m also not the most patient person, waiting around for feedback may be my downfall.  I’ve had people read sample passages, chapters or contest submissions before, but this is possibly the worst.  It’s my first time, so I know I’ve got to cut myself some slack, but seriously, cue the self-loathing and anxiety meds.
