all that bracing myself for rejection, wasted

The day I applied to the Viable Paradise writers’ workshop, Carole said:

“There’s a book I want to lend you!”

…and it was by Elizabeth Bear, who is one of this year’s instructors.

This morning I heard that I got in!

This evening Claire and I had dinner at Burger Joint. Claire said:

“Now mama tell me about your day!”

…and at that VERY MOMENT the jukebox started playing “Paperback Writer”.
