Writing in the time of COVID-19

Life has taken a turn. I have a day job working in an ancillary capacity to the medical field and the recent pandemic has me working 12 hour days, seven days a week just to keep information about COVID-19 flowing online.

So my writing has suffered quite a bit while I work and worry about the current state of our society, unable to escape into my fantasies while real life is pounding on my door. I wish I could say that I have a book almost ready to publish or that I have a story that is bursting out of me, but at the moment, I’m struggling to remain calm on a day to day basis.

I love writing. I love connecting with readers. But this state of affairs has plunged me into exhaustion and worry and I’m clinging desperately to hope that all my loved ones will see the other side of it.

So I can’t write right now. But that won’t always be so. Like the pandemic, like my despair, my inability to write will pass. I’m looking forward to that day.

Please, please, please take care of yourselves!!! I’ll see you on the other side. 🙂
