These Fall days, with leaves turning gorgeous colors and a nip in the air, one can become reflective. Like the turning of the seasons, coupled with the physical and emotional changes in the world around us, one needs to reassess one’s own internal seasons to see what changes are coming or need to be addressed.
It’s very difficult to not allow the current atmosphere of hate and fear to affect one’s attitude and creativity. The trees are beautiful but the world is not. Perhaps it’s just another excuse for not getting on the stick and writing, but we are struggling with a bit of creative depression. I’d like to think we will shake it off and pull ourselves up by the bootstraps because hope springs eternal, but it’s tough.
I’m not sure what catalyst we need to get going again. I like to think that the Litzo’s writing really is a calling we can’t long ignore, and not just a hobby we walk away from when it’s convenient. Nancy actually pulled up our latest work in progress and did some editing. Maybe all it takes is one of us to light the fire. Here’s hoping.
Don’t give up on us yet. Thanks for sticking with us. Best wishes for the Fall season.
Nancy, Anne, and Eric
