How to Get Past That Feeling of Rejection

description

Ouch.

As an artist and a writer, I know about rejection. I had to sit in class once, while 20 art students and a professor critiqued my art. They were brutal, too. Some took it personally and remembered how I had critiqued their work, so now they had a chan... Read more of this blog post »

Some topics send me off into angry thinking, but not usually the claim of rights for women. The last straw was a letter to the editor (The Dominion Post, February 23, 2018) under the heading “A Woman’s Decision” from one Blake Overs.

In the letter he uses the words “women’s rights issue”.

What exactly is a “reading slump”? A reading slump is the scariest, most terrible thing that can ever happen to a bookworm. Scarier than running out of books. A reading slump is being unable to read because of exhaustion (probably caused by dry textbooks) or disinterest.

She tipped the cab driver,
