It's April 26th and I still have heard no news from the Delacorte Random House Contest. I'm actually quite calm about it, granted I haven't checked my mailbox today. It will either happen or it won't. God's in control of the outcome and worrying won't make a difference.
Here's my funny writing thing of the day; I suddenly had the best inspiration yesterday for writing! But it was at one of those opportune times. I was at work, down in the basement in our stock room and all of a sudden, these ideas for my story just started coming to me. I'd been stuck earlier in the day and it was amazing! I was lucky that I had some paper with me that I'd been writing down stock items on. I pulled out a piece of paper and sat down in the dim and dusty aisle, filled with dozens of types of tape and six types of staples. To be secretive, I pulled my cart in front of me and just spent ten minutes writing down the ideas. Then I tore off the page and tucked it in my apron pocket and went back to work. I love those weird moments of inspiration! It had absolutely nothing to do with work.
I'll let you know about the mail when I get home today! (Well, if I hear anything, if not I won't say.)
