The Oprah quote above resonates particularly this year. Weve all struggled, and weve all found unexpected strength in our battles.
But we do need to know … How are you doing? How are you truly doing? Are you serene, worried, coping, struggling, writing, blocked, crazy, or something else? If you are ready to share, we would like to understand.
Today we pick to celebrate YOU, our writing household online. We are blessed that you choose to invest time with us every week, every month, every year. We wish to know how you are doing.
We hear you. We see you. We definitely believe in you, and your capability to dig deep to discover your story.
This isnt a political post, this is a “how are you doing, actually” post. We truly wish to know.
Here in the United States, with COVID case counts spiking, things are feeling particularly hard. The usual Independence Day guidelines do not apply 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 home.” Everybody does not concur.
Some authors have informed me they do basically the same thing they did before the pandemic – remain home and compose. Other writers have actually informed me their world has actually changed and they are battling to make a living. Still more have told me the state of the world has plunged them into misery.
Many of us behind the scenes are dragging. All of us are working hard to keep our spirits up to write another day.
What are you battling with? And what unforeseen strengths have you discovered?
Big Hugs to YOU, from Your Team at Writers In the Storm
