Patience is a Virtue

My mother used to say “patience is a virtue” and would then tell me I had no patience for anything.

Ever.

Still don’t.

When I decide to do something, I want it done yesterday. When I want something, I want it right now.

Waiting is a painful game I’m not very good at playing. Quite simply, I don’t have the patience for it.

Which is why I’m in a current state of near-tizzy because I’ve been waiting for two weeks  – two weeks! – for The Women of Tenacity Series to be distributed to all e-reading channels. And it isn’t quite there yet. So I sit on my hands and grow antsy while waiting. I want to blast out newsletters, send off press releases, shout from the mountain tops that my books have been published digitally. Unfortunately, I need to wait until my books can be accessed in all those channels. Including the ones that are still in the process of making my books available.

I know in the grand scheme of things, two weeks is nothing.  But my common sense and impatience are often at war and all too often impatience wins. I know it is a flaw I need to work on. Really I do. It’s just that I’d really like it fixed yesterday…
