If your author's life is anything like mine, you might be ever so tempted to just pull the covers over your head and never leave your bed.
The Rainy Day Fund you scrimped and saved and clipped countless coupons to create isn't earning enough interest to pay for a First Class stamp. Every time you log onto a writer's loop, there's dismal news about a publisher who isn't paying, a magazine distributor that shuttered its doors and left newsstands alarmingly bare, or word of another market that's dead/dying.
Whatever should we do?
Throw off those covers, get out of bed, put on our big girl panties, and get to work! One foot in front of the other. One word at a time.
When times get tough, the tough keep working. I'm going to cross my fingers and hope that there's going to be light at the end of that dark tunnel soon ... light that isn't the proverbial train!
What's your strategy to cope with all the dismal news?
May the Muse be kind!!
