Oh, how life can change at a moment’s notice.
The only comment I can make is WOW. How life can change in just a few weeks. I think one of the most interesting things I have been watching are all the excerpts from various fiction books that have descriptions of events like what is happening now.
I can’t count how many times people have either messaged me or posted on Facebook that Stephan King’s The Stand is not just fiction, but prophecy. I don’t really want to write about comparisons between fiction and reality.
Fiction and Fantasy authors try to take the worst situation imaginable and make it worse. We love to play on your emotions and throw you a curve ball, that’s how we entertain you. I think it will be interesting to see that now we are in the middle (hopefully) of a global quarantine, what the response of the author community will be? What new paths will this reality take the imaginations of authors down?
I have been amazed at the number ideas that I have come up with not only for my first series, but all new series in different genres. The quiet and solitude has worked to my advantage so far. I hope it continues.
I hope you are all staying safe and healthy and just know that if you need an escape from reality, skip the movies and go back to the best form of entertainment…books and your own imagination.
