I read many of your blogs where some of you are bitching about the virus. It is not so much the virus you are complaining about but how it has affected your lives.
Total truth in transparency, I am too. I am a people person.
When you discover that you forgot your mask and have to return home just so you can pick up a few things at the store, yes that bites. That is the problem with using a mask we wash. So, keep a few store-bought ones in your purse or car.
Some of us are so vain that wearing a mask covers that expensive dental procedure or perhaps yes, that last minor fix from the dermatology folks or even our friendly surgeon who erases the effects of time.
I get it.
Some are so self-centered that they don’t give a damn and do what they want or what they feel. The truth is your ignorance does not excuse you from being responsible for your actions.
Those of us who ‘think’ know that for the foreseeable future, life will look different. Until the political elite stops using the virus as a cudgel and get the truth disseminated among the rest of us, only then will we honestly know what ‘normal’ is.
In the states, if it were up to me, I would vote every long term politician out of office irrespective of political stripe. Talk is cheap, and that, my friends, is all they offer talk and lies.
While a particular politician told us not to worry about the virus, she was investing heavily in Amazon.
When public servants become millionaires, you should kick them to the curb.
Our social media platforms are working against us, too, which is troublesome. I posted a question about an individual person’s laptop, and my account was suspended. That is an infringement on free speech. I happen to believe that selling access to the Vice president of the US is treason. Why is the media covering this up? Why are the social media giants carrying water for them?
While the reality of conspiracy plays out on the nightly news and the tabloids, as a writer, it is all fodder for my next Kelly McGuire novel.
I finished rewriting and redoing the cover on Presidential Assassins The God Killers last night.
In preparation for NaNoWriMo, I wanted to finish this project so I could jump into my next project.
Check out my book and tell me what you think. If you like it, leave me a review.
COVID has changed all our lives. The holidays will not be the same. Those special dinners and times when you go over the river and through the woods might not happen this year.
Grandma has Skype and Zoom, and just maybe it is time for you to learn how to make her stuffing or perhaps pumpkin pie. If you live by yourself like many of us, well, just maybe it is time for you to pick up a good book, sit back with your hot tea and a warm blanket, and get lost in the world of a writer’s mind like myself.
I will not hazard a trip to my children’s house if there are grandkids who wipe their snotty noses with their fingers. They don’t appreciate the invisible enemy’s hazards and what it can do to more mature individuals.
As much as you might want that cuddle time, it is not worth it. Call them, skype them, or even use Alexa to talk with them. Find a way to connect where you are safe.
For us writers, NaNoWriMo is upon us; why not use this time as an excuse to hide in your lair and allow your imagination to run wild. Unleash your mind and vomit the world you dream of on the screen or paper.
There is a race to the cure, as there are considerable dollars in play. Someone will come up with something soon. The snow will melt, the leaves will return, and 2020 will be a blip in the history books. Those of us who have lost people will remember them, honor them and press on as we must.
That bell will toll for us soon enough, don’t waste your days waiting on it. Make your mark, tell your story, and reach out to those that you love. Find light over dark, love over hate, and stop lamenting that which you cannot control.
Much love –TW
