The Waiting Game

Though I am querying right now, that's not the waiting game I'm talking about.

First, let me say hello and welcome to all my new followers! I look forward to getting to know you all!

So now to what's on my mind...

For the past four years, I've wanted nothing more than to be a drama teacher. The theatre education program at my university is an amazing program, and every step I take to get closer to my goal is exhilarating.

This morning, I turned in my application. Twelve hours later, I'm still sick to my stomach. By Tuesday night, I will know whether or not I've made it into the program, and there's nothing more I can do about it now.

My future is out of my hands.

It's like querying, only a million times worse. I want to be an author, but my desire to be a teacher is absolutely overwhelming. I'm so passionate about theatre, about the arts, and about helping those around me. I want to do that for the rest of my life, and now four strangers are deciding if I'll even get the chance.

At least I know this will be over by Tuesday. I'll either get in or I won't. It's not quite as long of a waiting game as querying.

But it's still torture.



  1. Oh man, I've got my fingers so very tightly crossed for you. I'm hoping to hear very good news on Tuesday. <3 Good luck!

    (Also, unrelated, but I plugged your blog on the Pay it Forward Blogfest today!)

  2. Oh my goodness, I've been in that spot many times... I wish you the best of luck... I hope your dream comes true!

  3. I wish you good luck! My fingers are crossed for you.

  4. You mean there's something worse than querying???

    Hope it goes well. :)

    Hi, new follower here!

  5. Good luck. I hope you get it. At least you'll know by Tuesday, just another couple of days.


Share your passion!
