I don’t know you or about the rest of the world, but lately the news has been bringing me down.
Perhaps you’ve seen the cartoon with the caption that says something along the lines of “my need to be well informed is in conflict with my need to remain sane.”
Yeah, that would be me.
There’s a reason I write fiction that is a) humorous b) set years ago when the Short Fingered Vulgarian was just a D-list celebrity loser who hosted the Miss Universe contest.
For me, fiction is an escape and one of my favorite things is writing a scene and actually making myself laugh. To me that’s when writing is the most fun. (I don’t know how people write post-apocalyptic fiction; I’d want to throw myself off a cliff.)
