They say there’s always a cruise story. Here’s one you wouldn’t expect. How does this relate to writing? A writer must be able to see the worst possible scenario in order to create tense moments, but she must also be ready to see the best, to be the ultimate optimist. So I got a rejection, so what? Vacation didn’t go as planned…big deal. There’s always hope, at least until a heart stops beating, right?
Wrong. I found this out in the most unlikely place: our Caribbean cruise.
