Which Way Now?
Laid up with the ankle injury again I've time to consider what next? Along with everyone else on the planet, we live in uncertain mercurial times. Which way to vote? Which job to go for? What to write next? Which agent to submit to? Amongst all the confusion, rejection and stagnation of a writing and working life - is it all worth it?
The answer to the last one is yes, always, just persist, resist, exist. As Maya Angelou said,
'But still, like air, I'll rise.'
Got to keep on keeping on, looking out for those signposts. So, thanks to the SCBWI community for support and encouragement. Hopefully they'll be an enjoyable bread and butter job out there soon and those stories and words in competition will sparkle enough to be noticed and at least longlisted. Got to keep on keeping on!
