I'm not invincible...what?

Early in January I had a journal entry all planned, I was going to describe writing a novella in only five days, how inspiration struck me in the middle of the night, and how I had finally broken through a personal barrier.

I simmered away for at least two weeks, pleased and thrilled...and positively invincible.

And then I fell off my high horse when two rejections came through instead of the hoped for proof that I'm not a flash in the pan. Ow, that was a blow to the ego.

My own personal ray of sunshine came through, as she always does. And support from other quarters made the picking myself up and dusting myself off bearable.

A new CD that surprised me with how absolutely incredible it is went a long way to restoring my good mood.

So now I rise above one star ratings on Good Reads, and ignore the fact that it's time for taxes, and Super Bowl parties, and flooding rains.

A glass of wine, good music, and the love of my life. Perhaps I'm not invincible, but I -am- blessed.

Trying to keep my balance, but you went a long way in helping me see past the negativity. :)
