We don’t have mice! Just rats. The two critters we caught in the traps last night, which I thought were big mice, were actually baby rats. Thank goodness, only one kind of vermin.
Moving on to something less depressing, I liked this post by internet movie pioneer Earl Newton of Stranger Things, on “Dealing with Silence and Rejection.” Having just received another rejection slip (my most encouraging yet!), this was a good find. Thanks to Mur Lafferty for retweeting it.
Rejections. Haven’t faced that hurdle yet, but will, as soon as I get over this query thing.
Sorry about the R. :(
I always dealt with the rejections with booze and chocolate, and with silence with denial. It’s a good system.
(okay, truth is: I just keep writing, no matter what. sooner or later everything else fades away when I do that.)
Thanks for the linklove, Mr. Unfocused. :D
When I’m in Chicago next we’ll have to grab food.
