This is how I’ve been feeling lately. You see, I was stuck on a particular marketing strategy for my book and the whole project ground to a standstill for months on end while I continued to push, pull, shove, maneuver and stubbornly persevere.

I felt like I was stuck in quicksand. Do you ever have one of those dreams where you’re running but just not getting anywhere?
Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m all for perseverance. Perseverance has brought me to where I am in life. Perseverance has allowed me to survive the hard times and rise from them triumphantly.
