Okay, being an author has many highs and lows. Lows are when you get rejection letters from publishers, bad book reviews, and writer's block. Highs are just the opposite, plus many others.
I had an "author high" two days ago when I was doing research for my next book. I am tracking this particular man and his life in online newspapers. All I have are written words, but then, in one of the papers I found it! There was an actual sketch of the man, and many things associated with the story I am researching.
You just can't beat that!!!
