WHEN YOU REACH THE END OF YOUR ROPE,
TIE A KNOT IN IT
This one is for all of us who think we're at the end of our ropes, whether in our writing careers or in some other area of our lives.
Hang on . . . until a net appears, cradling us, easing us down safely.
Hang on . . . until strong arms appear, supporting us, settling us on solid ground.
Hang on . . . until our own muscles gain the strength to haul ourselves back up that rope so we can begin again.
