Been quite the year, hasn’t it? Damn. I don’t know about anyone else, but this has hit my creative core hard. In 2019, I was writing a novel in 3-4 months. This year, I’m struggling to get one book done. As some of you may know, I don’t write full time. I write in my spare time. My full time job is in healthcare where I’m the Lead Medical Assistant for an Internal Medicine clinic. The patients we see are all high risk so COVID isn’t being taken lightly. As far as the medical field goes, it’s nothing all that out of the ordinary, just more strict guidelines, but the fear, anxiety, and contagious nature are quite a bit higher than we’re used to. It’s not fun and this delta variant is no joke. I’m finding it hard to write after a day spent in those conditions. I wanted to take a few minutes to let my readers know that I am, indeed, still writing and I will have books coming out in the future, but I’m definitely going slower than I, and likely all of you, would like. I hope you all stay safe and if you’re unlucky enough to catch this virus, my wish is that you heal fully and quickly.
