I feel like there should be something witty or comforting to say right now, but the world around us is falling to pieces, people can’t work, can’t make money and the bills still come. All around me people who work in stores and salons and theaters are filing unemployment claims to try to scrape by while we shelter in place.
For most of us born after the last world war, this is unprecedented.
It’s an odd thing. As an agoraphobe, this is largely how I live anyway, but now that I have to live this way, I find myself frustrated a little at not being able to just decide to build up my courage and take myself out somewhere…to the park, to eat…whatever.
I probably wouldn’t anyway, but we always want what we can’t have, right?
Shelter in Place…a term we have used mostly as a means to keep people safe during terrifying emergencies like an active shooter, an escaped convict. Who thought we would ever use it to keep people safe from a virus?
Well, if you need something to occupy some of your time, my vampire novel, Forever, is now available in audiobook format and I have some free codes if you’re interested in reviewing it. Just hit me up on my Facebook page.
And with that, dear Readers, I am off to make some more coffee, drink some more water and prepare myself for a day of phone interviews. Stay safe, wash your hands, shelter in place and we’ll get through this thing together.
