When do you decide it has turned from a slump or trough into your are lost?
The terminology is clear, both slump and trough indicate you had better times and think there is a new horizon approaching-I don't think that for myself.
Nothing I wrote this year has sold even a copy and the only good news was Holding Richmond kept selling until last month.
Each month I try to keep going and each month I end up questioning my judgement on continuing in the hope something will (!) turn around-how long can I keep this up? I have no idea.
