The Oprah quote above resonates particularly this year. Weve all had a hard time, and weve all found unanticipated strength in our battles.
We do want to understand … How are you doing? How are you actually doing? Are you serene, worried, coping, struggling, composing, blocked, crazy, or something else? If you are prepared to share, we would love to know.
Here in the United States, with COVID case counts spiking, things are feeling especially hard. The normal Independence Day guidelines do not apply this year. There are no celebrations, no fireworks, no parades. Health officials are universal in their message: “The most patriotic thing Americans can do this year is to stay at home.” Everybody does not concur.
Some writers have actually informed me they do practically the exact same thing they did prior to the pandemic – remain home and write. Other authors have informed me their world has actually altered and they are battling to make a living. Still more have told me the state of the world has dropped them into anguish.
