I was disappointed to find out I hadn’t made it into the writing workshop I had applied for. But maybe this time it has worked out for the best. Six weeks is a long time without pay when you have a mortgage.
If I had been accepted, you can bet I would have found a way to do the workshop. I’ve always been told if you want something and you are determined enough; you’ll find a way of making it happen. I didn’t get in this time, however I will be applying again in 2011. Until that time, there are other writing opportunities to follow up.
