In these crazy times. I’ve lived through several Black Swan events. Each one changed the world, or at least my world. This one is affecting everyone in every corner of the world. People are panicking, the markets are panicking, governments are panicking. When people feel afraid and unsure of what the future will bring they like to have someone to blame for what’s going on. I get that. I’m just not convinced that the blame can be laid at any one entity’s feet.
I am doing my part as best I can. I’m not sick, but it’s only been a few days since my last public exposure so who knows. Apparently it’s the asymptomatic carriers who are spreading Covid-19. I am self isolating just in case and hoping for the best. In two weeks I’ll reevaluate along with the rest of the world.
I’ve been trying to write because it’s a great thing to do while I’m confined at home, but I’ve been distracted by the enormity of what’s happening to the world as I knew it. Words are hard to get down. Plot lines are difficult to hang on to. I’m distracted. I hope it will only take another day or two to settle in and get back to work.
I’m in the middle of writing a new standalone romance. I have covers to make for the first three (finished and edited) books in a new mystery/romance series and covers to make for the first two (finished and edited) novellas in a new science fiction series. I love both series and look forward to getting back to them.
This is the first blog post on my redesigned website. I’d love any feedback. Is it easy to navigate? Can you find what you want? Drop your thoughts in the comment box below.
I had intended to write more, but again, distracted. Like a dog with a squirrel.
