I've tried off and on for 3 days to try and write this blog post. I'd get something down, and quickly delete it. Nothing seemed right.
It doesn't help the matter that my daughter just got a heart transplant on Saturday evening and I'm going on very, very little sleep this week. She's doing great, but the recovery process is exhausting (more so for her... but Momma's hitting bottom of barrel too!)
So I am going to be short, sweet, and to the point today.
Life goes on.
After contest finals, and contest fails.
After manuscript requests from agent/editors, and after manuscript rejections from agents/editors.
After news of your baby's heart defect, and after heart transplant.
Life is full of ups and downs. The writing life included.
Embrace the highs,
hold tight during the dips,
and rest up during the breaks.
