Here in the US, with COVID case counts spiking, things are feeling particularly hard. The usual Independence Day rules do not use this year. There are no celebrations, no fireworks, no parades. Health authorities are universal in their message: “The most patriotic thing Americans can do this year is to stay at house.” Everyone does not agree.
It is an understatement to say it has been a hard numerous months around the globe. In the face of this pandemic, much of our readers here at WITS are dragging. A number of us behind the scenes are dragging. Everybody are striving to keep our spirits up to compose another day.
The Oprah quote above resonates particularly this year. Weve all struggled, and weve all discovered unanticipated strength in our battles.

Some writers have told me they do quite much the exact same thing they did prior to the pandemic – stay at home and write. Other writers have told me their world has actually changed and they are battling to make a living. Still more have actually told me the state of the world has plunged them into anguish.
We hear you. We see you. We definitely think in you, and your ability to dig deep to find your story.
But this isnt a political post, this is a “how are you doing, actually” post. We truly wish to know.
