I have never been particularly good at waiting, it is a skill I lack.
I am currently waiting to hear back from a competition I entered last month, that is peer reviewed. There is no tangible prize, just the joy of winning or placing.
I desperately want to place.
It is a genre specific competition, and if I place, I will consider it a real coup, a subtle nod that I am in fact, headed in the right direction. Validation that every decision I have made up to this point was worth it.
What are you waiting for this week?
(My little writing buddy is also waiting, although she is rather better at it than me.)
