I have had a minor set back in my writing career but instead of feeling sorry for myself, (which I did for a couple of days, I admit), I decided to put my big girl pants on and to keep on writing.
I think what hurts the most is when people email me and ask when my next book is coming out. It’s something I have no control over at this point in time.
But now, I am between two manuscripts and having the time of my life. Don’t ever give up!
