Usually, I take that as a sign to take some time off and do something else, unless I'm at a critical juncture, in which case, I just try to slug it through.

The plan was to funnel visitors to my download page to distribute my second fantasy book, “The Children of Lubrochius,” and collect e-mails for my newsletter. So far, after several months of work, I’ve only collected one new...
