Life Is A Lottery
You can't dream about how you're going to spend your millions if you haven't entered the lottery.
Well, I've realised this theory works on a lot of things. I can't dream of blogging for Mills and Boon if I don't enter their competition. So I have!
I can't dream of working in a school, term time hours only, to fit around me and the boys, if I don't apply. So I have.
These things are a bit of a lottery. I believe that some element of luck works in your favour as well as your skill and ability. It's very hard to get a job in a school, so I am treating it a bit like winning the lottery. I'm buying a lot of tickets... i.e. applying for every job I'm qualified to do. Thus increasing my odds.
I imagine it's even harder to become the blogger for Mills and Boon, too. *sigh*
And I can't dream of being a published writer if I'm not writing... yeah, yeah, I know! I am trying to get my writing mojo back. But at this rate I'm going to need a refresher course in punctuation because I'm currently having a mental block as to where the full stop or comma goes - inside or outside of speech marks! It's a bit like when you're standing at the cash point, and all of a sudden, for love nor money, you can't remember your pin, and the machine is beeping at you. I'm sure it will all come back to me.
Ok, so ready for tomorrow - it is Thursday, after all. Here's a treat. A Shirtless Daniel Craig.
Now I need to get back to brainstorming my short story... as I can't dream of winning a short story competition, if I don't enter, right?
