It was a quiet day until I got the email telling me a short story of mine is to be published in print and online. I’m very pleased. And surprised. I only submitted it because the journal offered editorial feedback.
I don’t have details yet, but when I do, I’ll share.
I’m starting to get a rhythm to this work-at-home stuff. I still distract easily, but that could be stress. I was told by a wise person that we’re all ADD under stress.
Be good to yourself!

Congratulations on acceptance for the reading! I am struggling to continue writing but it’s not easy to let go of all the other things crowding my brain. A friend’s FB post about Maslow’s triangle reminded me of why this is so–we’re all functioning down at the “safety” and “basic needs” levels these days. so it’s difficult to rise to the level of productivity.
I have always loved Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs! So simple, so true. I find that having my work published and/or read feeds my Belonging needs. I, too, am not able to create right now. I think I will later after all this starts to feel a bit normal.
