Hurry up and wait

Still waiting on the results of a writing contest I entered.

What if I didn’t at least become a finalist? Keep working hard, reading, attending workshops, etc.

What if I made the cut? Cry tears of joy. And continue doing the above.

I often remind myself Robert Pirsig’s novel, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, was rejected by more than 130 publishers before being accepted. It then became a best-seller.
