Writing In The Time of Corona

Like many others, I've been self-isolating at home for nearly three weeks due to this worrisome and surreal COVID-19 crisis. I hope all of you are staying as safe and healthy as possible and looking out for your loved ones and your community.

We've been trying to NOT watch the news 24-7 because, let's face it, it's scary and depressing. We've been playing a fun dominoes game called Spinner, watching our crazy and beloved 90 Day Fiance, Poldark (great for lovers of Downton Abbey and Outlander), and reruns of King of Queens or The Office. Heck, we may even try Tiger King soon but I'll admit, I'm afraid of that too. Ha.

I've been wanting to read and write more, but it's tough to concentrate with this worldwide pandemic happening all around us.


I volunteered to be a slushpile judge which means I've made a commitment to read submissions for a fabulous writing contest associated with the DFW Writers Conference.

I'm super excited about this because it takes me back to the blissful days of writing and submitting my stories with hopes that someday some of my stories would be published. (Mission accomplished.) Plus, the world needs positivity and happiness right now, so I look forward to giving fellow writers uplifting critique on their submissions. (At least I hope it will be uplifting. I'm going to try my best.)

Want to know more or interested in submitting? You can find all the details here.

First prize is FREE ADMISSION TO THE 2021 DFW CONFERENCE IN DALLAS. $429 value and an experience that cannot be missed! In addition, the winner will also receive a $100 Barnes & Noble gift card.

Sadly, I haven't been making much progress on book 4 of The Kindrily series. I hope to change that soon. Maybe after Tiger King. Ha. Kidding. Sort of. 

May you all stay safe and healthy during these uncertain times. We're all in this together, even while we have to stay apart.  *air hugs*
