What Do You Do While You Wait?

Seven of our writers contributed fantastic personal experience stories to the Guidepost writers contest. Twelve winners will win all expense paid trips to New York to learn how to write for Guidepost. Waiting can be exasperating. What do you do while you wait?

Here are a few suggestions:
  1. Pray for the Guidepost editors that they would find stories that represent writers they want to work with.
  2. Pray that God would go with your story before and behind to leave the editor inspired.
  3. Pray that the editor would see your story as a fit for the Guidepost audience.
  4. Pray for peace. You wrote a good story. You edited, rewrote and polished it. You submitted it for God's glory. 
  5. Leave it in God's hands and trust Him with the results.
  6. Keep writing.
  7. Keep submitting to other publishers.
In a couple weeks the calls will go out to twelve winners. I am praying for the Guidepost editors and for each person who submitted wonderful stories. May God be glorified.
