Outside of a few political posts and a guest post submitted to a travel blog, I have been unable to write.
I know COVID is impacting us all, many the same way, many in different ways. Beyond COVID the world around us is in turmoil. Artists, whether professional and well paid, or those who create as a calling, are more sensitive to the world around us. We empathize with all and often times sympathize with many.
The fact is that fear fueled hatred is filling the world. At times it is nearly palpable. It has caused beliefs to override and supplant data, reason and rational thinking.
When I post political here, those writings get very few views. I send them over to a friend’s political site where they are more widely read. But even with that, I tire of writing. There seems to be such a divide, a divide not based upon science, but based upon a partisan ideology, and that divide is causing many to be unnecessarily afflicted.
I’m not sure when I will write stories again.
I’m not sure when I will write new content for this blog again.
I will re-post older pieces, and from time to time, put up some stories at no charge.
I love writing.
I miss writing.
I want to continue writing.
I still hope to at least write a short story for submission to an anthology, but when I sit to write — nothing.
Thank you for your support, reviews and encouragement.
I love the friends I have made through my writing.
If you are interested in stories which I have written and self-published, I invite you to swing over to my website www.ShortStoryScribe.com there you will find links to the Amazon page of all my works.
Again, Thank you,
