"Flying helicopters has been referred to as the art of falling without hitting the ground–and the same might be said of the ride to publication. It’s the art of hanging in during the free fall, keeping your eye on the horizon, and refusing to give up. No matter what."
–Robert B. Robeson (in the Jul/Aug 2011 issue of Writer’s Digest)
I’m definitely feeling like this year is a free fall in my writing career. No trade sales yet, dwindling work-for-hire assignments, and a feeling of non-productivity. So I’m just hanging on. Looking forward to fall, always a time of fresh starts. How about you? Are you soaring or falling this year?
