Back in 2019, I felt inspired to write a magazine article titled, “10 Things to Remember When Times Are Bad.” I don’t propose to know the answer to every problem, but I know where those answers can be found and I have had a few experiences that helped me deal with my own situations in life.
During the process of putting the article together, I decided the idea might work as a book also. So I begin making a list of chapters I wanted to include and passed the idea before my critique group. They agreed that it could work as a book. I began work on the manuscript, but as life would have it, situations came along that hindered my getting the book written. When January 2020 arrived, I felt I should get busy on the book again. Within days, the Coronavirus arrived. I begin to think the book more relevant than ever. And again, let me say that I don’t propose to have all the answers.
Now here we are in August 2020 and the book has been released. It’s not a big book, but remember that it started out as a list for a magazine. I still like to think of it as a list, it has just been extended a bit. If you decide to read the book, I hope it encourages you and in some way gives you some answers or at least something to remember when bad times come your way.
