Slowly through the dark tunnel

I had a great idea for 2020: I was going to video readings of public domain spec fic, maybe passages from my own writings, and invite other authors to share readings of their own. I even prepared the first one on January 5th...but technology defeated me. The video was too large, and I couldn't figure out a feasible model to make it work.

And then...2020...
It's now the 15th month of the Covid19 pandemic, and although we are seeing signs of recovery on many fronts, we still have a long way to go.

Personally, I have been in a "major depressive episode" for longer than that. Most days I barely have enough energy for the things that I *have* to do, much less the many things I want and "should" do. I never have enough spoons. And my body parts seem to be failing one after the other. Shoulder rotator cuff, hip joint, knee osteoarthritis, tension headaches...sweet jeebus, this getting older isn't for the faint of heart!

All of this to say, I haven't been much of a writer. Or editor. Or publisher. And I miss all of that.

I miss conventions! My tribe! 

That's a lot of people and energy though...

I have more I want to say, but for now, I'm thinking about revisiting my video readings idea. 

Stay safe and well!
