On a Down Swing

I got an email yesterday that has me really down. It was basically a "No." when I really wanted a "Yes." Such is the life of my chosen profession. However, this one hit me hard. Everything is harder right now. I'm not depressed, really. I'm just sad. I won't say apathetic or that I have writer's block. I know what I need to write next but all I want to do is go stare at the ocean for a while.

Fortunately for me, Jeff has planned another small get away for our wedding anniversary that includes a really nice view of the ocean. Though, I hope I'm out of my funk in two weeks. I've got a contract to finish.

I'm not really sure what to do about this down swing. Maybe let it run its course for the rest of the week and do everything I need to do around the business of writing until I have nothing left to do but write. Maybe.
