And it’s Caturday … All authors stumble—some fall down and get bruised deeply. The only solution is to open your computer; get your pencil and pad out; or start dictating. Move forward, one word, one sentence, one paragraph, one chapter at a time. There is no other recovery method for when the rejection arrives at your authoring door.

That’s me for this Saturday … How about you?… What are you up to? …
