The Oprah quote above resonates especially this year. Weve all had a hard time, and weve all discovered unanticipated strength in our struggles.
Some authors have told me they do practically the same thing they did before the pandemic – stay at home and write. Other writers have informed me their world has actually altered and they are fighting to earn a living. Still more have informed me the state of the world has plunged them into misery.
Here in the US, with COVID case counts spiking, things are feeling especially hard. The typical Independence Day guidelines do not use this year. There are no parties, no fireworks, no parades. Health officials are universal in their message: “The most patriotic thing Americans can do this year is to remain at house.” Everybody does not agree.
