    Thank you, Dan. I usually write mysteries, but my just begun WIP is linked short stories set in a destroyed environment. Yours is just the thought I needed. I will hold it tight.

    Raging fires in Sonoma and LA, homeless people sleeping on sidewalks and in parks, politics that we won't discuss--the world feels dystopian. The feeling that I should do something--what I don't know--makes it hard to concentrate on writing.
