But Enough About Me

frustratedboomers

by Roxanne Tellier

Okay, I’m tired of the pandemic game now … can we play something else for a while?

I’ll tell you, I thought I’d be just fine with ‘social distancing.’ I’m not great with staying up late; social distancing is how I basically spend most Saturday nights.

And as the daughter of a hoarder, I was weeks ahead of most when the penny dropped, and people got into panic buying. Way ahead of you guys! I panic when I can see bare shelf in my pantry; I like to have at least six tins or packages of our favorite foods tucked away ‘just in case.’ 

I really thought the libraries being closed would be the straw that broke my spirit, but even there, I’m pretty much covered. Books, DVDs, CDs … I’m better than good. On top of that, there are all sorts of…

COVID-19 And The End Of Complacency

Great message here from Eric Lahti, one of my favourite indie authors.

Eric Lahti

First off, let me just say I thought COVID-19 was the name of the virus and the sickness you got was just a sickness. Apparently, I was wrong. COVID-19 is the sickness and SARS-CoV-2 is the virus. Personally, I think they need to come up with better names for both the disease and the virus. Although, to be fair, COVID-19 has done an admirable job of striking fear into the hearts of the world.

But, let’s face it, it’s only a matter of time before the first COVID-19 World Tour 2020 shirts start popping up.

As of this writing, we’re still semi-confined to our houses. I say semi-confined because essential businesses are still operating. Restaurants are doing take-out orders, grocery stores are still operating, and half of Albuquerque is at Lowe’s at any given point in time. Drive around the city and there’s still traffic, albeit less than usual. But…

Positive Messages

A great roundtable discussion with the authors at Mom’s Favorite Reads.

Mom's Favorite Reads

Welcome back to another of Mom’s Roundtable discussions. This issue I will be joined by members of Mom’s author group, to discuss the growing wave of fiction with positive messages, such as the Hope Punk movement. Of course, science fiction and fantasy stories with a hopeful, progressive, and positive setting are nothing new, and many of us grew up with them, and it is no surprise that in these times of political division, economic hardship, and ecological disaster, it is only to be expected that authors and creators around the world will tackle the issues facing the world. Can hopeful and positive messages make a real difference though? Let’s see what our authors think – T.E. Hodden
