It’s not inevitable

It may feel that way, but it’s not inevitable. Every tap of send, every email response opened. They all hold an aura of the inevitable. It’s not a false hope nor a fait accompli. It’s an opportunity. Rejection is not guaranteed though it remains the highest probability.

Rain is not forever

Writers write, write to be read, and find an audience. This hope is the writer’s great commission. Another no, shouldn’t change that. And some writers will get a lot of no’s, others not as many, that changes nothing.

Keep pushing, keep trying, and maybe that email you stare out with the knots inside won’t be a no. You may get the yes you hoped for when you hit send.

I can’t wait for my yes, but I will have to for now. But I know the slim hope of yes is better than knowing nothing will happen.
