The Chasm of Hopelessness and...Vacation
There is reliable window of time where, in this writing business, I lose hope.
It's usually after I've finished a WIP and have started querying, and before a new idea has jelled in my mind.
In that bit of space, I flouder.
I lose hope.
And then...the ideas start to roll and hope once again gushes like an open spigot. (See above. Sorry, I am quite scientifically minded--I see things in graphs sometimes. (*shrugs*))
Well...do you have particular nadirs where hope is concerned? How do you get over it and yank it back through the window it's flown out of?
On that note, which sounds hopeless BUT isn't really, I'm on vacation starting today!
I am yanking the USB connector from the vein in my arm and tossing it aside for a week. Ouch!
So I apologize ahead of time for not commenting on your blogs...I will be back! In the meantime, I'll have some other things to occupy your time here at my blog next week!
