Rejections to Stay Humble

When it doesn’t go as planned, yell “plot twist!” and move on. That’s advice I saw in several different places, no idea where it’s originally from, but it’s fitting.

I’m in a weird lull right now, just at the end of my school program, about to start a new job – that’s been put on hold thanks to the troubling times. I’m in limbo. So what do we do while in limbo? WRITE!

Instead of thinking about how different things would’ve been if I went back to school for creative writing instead of vet assistant, I like to think I’m exactly where I need to be. There’s that butterfly effect, you change one little thing and it can change huge things. No thank you. I don’t want to lose a single thing I’ve gained this year – even if I’ve lost a few things along the way.

Getting back into writing means one major thing for me, getting rejected. And it’s okay, it comes with the territory. That’s the life of a penniless writer.

I’ve polished off some short stories, written new poetry and sent off some submissions to various magazines. After all that, I wait. After all, I’m exactly where I need to be.
