Some authors have informed me they do practically the exact same thing they did prior to the pandemic – remain home and compose. Other authors have actually told me their world has changed and they are fighting to make a living. Still more have informed me the state of the world has dropped them into misery.
Are you serene, anxious, coping, struggling, composing, obstructed, crazy, or something else? We would love to know if you are willing to share.
Many of us behind the scenes are dragging. All of us are working hard to keep our spirits up to compose another day.

Here in the US, with COVID case counts spiking, things are feeling particularly hard. The usual Independence Day rules 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.
