It’s a tree planting day on my Dry Creek land.
It’s proposal day on my book, As the Crow Flies.
A proposal is the written package sent to an agent/publisher to “sell your book.”
I never thought of these two actions as related.
Proposing a book.
You start with what you have.
And you plant it the best you can.
Then in some ways, it’s out of your hands.
You’re dependent on outside factors.
Rain, soil, sunshine, weed and tree competition, even fire.
Agents, cash-strapped publishers, the reading public.
Here we go.
We’ll see what happens.
It won’t be overnight.
Good things seldom are.
