One of the most frustrating parts of writing for me is the waiting. Waiting for ideas to pop into your head. Waiting for punchlines to what you're sure will be a joke. Waiting for time to write during a busy day. But most painful of all is waiting for acceptance or rejection.
In some ways rejection isn't that bad. At least it is a final result. Waiting is worse. Maybe that's why I find it hard to submit things. Sending something out means waiting. At least I know the result if I never put it out there.
Of course, such a philosophy is a little career limiting. So I have to summon up the courage to wait.
