There is only so much we can suggest for the protagonist to do at such a low spot. So I'll just post some quotes:
There. The appliance of these quotes into reality would probably end with a profitable result, yet, I can't tell whether these words would help for somebody that is incontestably fictional, let alone bound by fate written by another. So I infer that the next best thing to do will have to be to direct these words to the author himself. Good luck!
