The New Normal

      No Comments on The New Normal

You may or may not know that I’m a substitute at a local school district. I love my job. I miss my job. I miss the kids, I miss the staff. It makes me sad that I can’t see them. It makes me sad that I also don’t get a paycheck because I’m Per Diem. But I get it. You can’t work in a school and keep any social distancing. The kids are still learning about personal space, they’re still learning about how to properly wash their hands and cover their coughs and sneezes. Trying to tell them to not touch their faces is right out. Some kids take longer to process information and may take even longer to learn how to not spread germs. It’s not their fault. But we need to stop the spread. We need to get through this together.

So to keep busy, when not entertaining my own kiddo, I’ve been working very diligently on book 4’s cover, trying to focus myself to work on editing projects. It’s tough to concentrate when others are in the house, and with everything going on out there. In some ways this forced staycation has given me the time to work on what is turning out to be a somewhat problematic book cover. I can’t seem to get it just right, and it’s taking a lot of trial and error. If I was making more money, I’d buy some fancy devices and software that’s better to use than my 17 year old Photoshop program. For now I’ll do what I can.

Amazon is always open, and digital sales are sanitary! My novels are currently down to $2.99 each, which is a bargain! Also, be sure to check out my Thirty-One Gifts business for some retail therapy.
