Writing: Doing the Work With A Smile And A Prayer
Something very special is currently developing in my writing life; however, it is too soon to tell what exactly will develop. It’s like a Polaroid picture, waiting and staring at the gray square that, with a bit more time, will show if your photo is a keeper or throwaway.
At times, it is hard to stay grounded, and, I admit, it’s fun to allow my imagination to run wild with all the possibilities this blessing may bring, even if it is for a minute or two. But I always return to this: “If something’s going to happen for you, it will, you can’t make it happen. And it never does happen until you’re past the point where you care whether it happens or not.” ― Andy Warhol, The Philosophy of Andy Warhol
This is true. So many ups and downs. It’s a strange place, because… I don’t know; it’s hard to explain. On one hand, you’re sincerely thrilled and feel blessed; however, on the other, you realize all that you’ve sacrificed just to get to this point– standing on the door step, waiting to see if someone will open the door and let you come inside. Anyway, I’m moving along day-to-day, enjoying the moments, and smiling on this ride. Romans 8:28. Visit: www.ernestlangston.com and my Facebook page (hint: Golden Gate Bridge). Enjoy and Stay Tuned!
