Mr. Doubts on Fire

I had applied for a job a month ago. They replied today, “Shortlisted”. Relief.

Throughout the month, i had a slew of thoughts. ‘What have i written in the cover letter?’ ‘Is it okay to write that?’ And so on.

What i had written was where i am in life — at home — and the reasons for it — taking care of the parents. There was very little on-the-job experience — editing — but the content — environment, people, power– is something i have been working with for a decade now.

Yet, i am wracked by doubt when i put my own reality into words. At the very root of it is the question, ‘Is this worth anyone’s time?’ I had sent it as there was only one way to find out.

Now, here i am. Tomorrow, i will reply.
