Some authors have told me they do basically the very same thing they did before the pandemic – stay at home and compose. Other writers have told me their world has altered and they are fighting to earn a living. Still more have informed me the state of the world has plunged them into despair.
Here in the US, with COVID case counts spiking, things are feeling especially hard. The usual Independence Day rules do not use this year. There are no celebrations, no fireworks, no parades.

However this isnt a political post, this is a “how are you doing, really” post. We genuinely would like to know.
Are you serene, anxious, coping, having a hard time, composing, blocked, insane, or something else? We would love to know if you are willing to share.
