“The single biggest threat to man’s continued dominance on the planet is the virus.”
— Joshua Lederberg
We continue to stay at home per Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s executive order due to the Coronavirus pandemic as the U.S. takes the lead in the number of virus cases in the world-100,000- and counting. We are allowed to go outside for walks but minimize our trips to the grocery store.
“Remember, this is an order, not a recommendation,” Whitmer said in a virtual town hall meeting on Thursday evening.
Personally, as a writer, I am used to isolation; it’s the only way to get anything done. I finished making corrections to 150 pages of the Greenwich Meridian Memoir in the afternoon.
If you ever wanted to write a book, now is a good time to start. If you want to finish your book, now is a good time to pick it back up.
You can make an outline and write two to three chapters or you can write a short story. The inspiration is all around us as well as in us waiting to spill out into the world.
Using your creativity is the best way to battle containment. Watch for excerpts from the Greenwich Meridian Memoir- how mom Ella battled with loneliness in Texas during the first immigration from former Czechoslovakia.
