Long Dark Catnap of the Soul

Somewhere along the line, I decided it would be a good idea to pursue a career in the arts during the worst financial times since The Great Depression.

Is this really the action of a stable mind?

Back in the 90s, the world was made of money and I couldn’t write a novel to save my life. Now, I’ve got one and a half completed. Trouble is, half the world is now bankrupt, and the other half is in serious trouble.

My timing sucks.

On the other hand, I have a complete novel and email query letters cost nothing. I lose nothing by continuing to try to sell this novel.

If only I could wring myself enough out of this funk to think the other one is worth the effort of completing…..

  1. New writers get published every day – why not you?
    People are out there making money – every day, why not you?
    Remember everything we’re learning points towards a faith in the idea that what happens in the life of others – even when it seems to be global, does not have to influence what happens in YOUR life.

    Dream On.
