Doing Your Best, Be Your Best

I’m not sure what this post is about, except to kind of address the atmosphere that is going on right now. I have friends who are too stressed to write, friends who are too afraid to find their creativity… and then friends who are completely oblivious to what is occurring and just keep on keeping on like nothing is happening.

I’m not saying that any of these methods are correct or incorrect. I do think that this is not the time for us to duck our heads creatively and go into hiding. If anything, I want to spend this time making sure that I produce things that make people happy, that I can get my writing out there so that I can help to distract the people who are worried and stressed, who aren’t sure what they’re going to do with everything that is currently going on.

So, I’m going to do my best. I’m going to do what I can do from home, and I’m gonna be working on getting my stories out there that I know people enjoy. I’m going to try to post on here more, and to generally be as active as I can be, so that I can contribute my drop to the well, so to speak. I just want to be able to give people a moment of peace, a moment of happiness, a moment to forget how crazy things are going right now while they escape into the worlds that I write and create.

Long-winded way to say that I’ll be posting a lot more fanfics, and a lot more writing prompt responses and whatnot, but… yeah. xD That’s what I’m saying.

And I’m encouraging you all to do the same thing. Do what you can to help, even if it’s just a random act of kindness for a stranger while you’re at the store. Do what you can, because even if it is just a drop… eventually, enough drops will fill up that well that I was talking about, and everyone will have something to drink.

Do your best. ❤ Be your best. Especially in times of stress. 

Keep reading, keep writing, and keep on keeping on!
