After Missing the Boat
Along with the thrill of publication, every writer must face rejection and redirection from time to time. Such experiences are simply part of the writing journey. But what do you do when you miss the boat that promised to sail you to success? Or worse, how do you recover when the ship you were counting on to deliver the fruits of your labors suddenly capsizes? Diana shares details of her most recent shipwreck and how she’s staying afloat by using survival secrets learned during her four decades as a published author.
