The anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terror attacks — in the midst of an ongoing pandemic — called to mind a post about writing through grief.
That said, of course tragedy can strike at any time; the events that set the creation of that post into motion occurred before coronavirus was a common word in the US.
Author Diana Giovinazzo describes how the process of watching a friend fight cancer, but ultimately succumb to it, affected her creative work.
It’s not simply a lament, though; Giovinazzo was able to return to writing, and so her post also aims to encourage other authors in the same boat.
