Show Notes

Allen, Thom and Patrick share some of their responses to the recent Senate impeachment trial of the former president, including a celebration of the excellent job done by the House Impeachment Managers and disappointment in 43 Republicans senators voting to acquit in spite of the evidence. Realizing that they had accidentally stumbled into their topic for the episode, they continue with examples of how we can respond to disappointments and even devastation by experiencing the loss but not letting that loss stop us from taking appropriate and positive action to keep moving forward. One lens they look through is that of writers dealing with anxiety and rejection on the way towards publication. 

NEXT WEEK: We’ll continue exploring constructive ways to respond when life gives us lemons.
