Plus, upcoming debut writers for next year had a little introduction thing going on over at IG and Twitter (#22debuts). I did, like, some
of the prompts but probably shared more about MONSTERS than I have in two whole months rip. So if that’s your thing (and I hope it is pls) check out my last posts on IG (@tanviberwah
Now the very dedicated among you might notice the changed format of this thing; from writers + readers we’re now using update, and here’s why! Because it makes no sense for me to plead the fifth every time under the ‘readers’ heading!
Like, things are moving along!! Believe me, please lol. In fact this time, I am writing this on the ripe old evening of July 31st, because for once I had a lot on my plate and forgot to actually plan this (which surprises no one, I think. The forgetting, not the busyness). Something super cool is going on, and I’d love for things to work out, so cross your fingers for me, send your prayers and dua, or the good vibes of Ye Olde Universe please!
Now when exactly can I reveal stuff? who knows, not me!
If you just murmured oh my god tanvi shut the fuck up you say that every time, you are not wrong to throw tomatoes at me booing as you do. It is the official publication motto, after all. I’m as baffled as you at how long publishing timeline truly is, even though I have literally worked in publishing before and thought I was ready.
Friends, you are never ready.
When I told my dad this bts news, he actually congratulated me (very rare) and asked when I’ll be able to announce. The conversation kinda went like this:
Dad: so when?
Dad: you said it’ll be in some time.
Dad: okay so how long?
Me, mumbling: a while
Dad: what’s a while? six months? a year?
Me, laughing in despair: no
That’s the magic of publishing folks! We go insane and time gets warped and then we’re sobbing to our readers instead of giving them actual useful information!
