I watched a youtube video the other day about some of the most overdone tropes in fantasy literature. The Youtuber was someone who had been in the publishing industry and then decided to become an author, so she is decidedly more of an authority on the subject of what publishers want than I am.

Well hello, my wonderful Coffee Share friends! Come on in, grab you a cup of tea and have a seat. Today we’re drinking green tea with a hint of honey and ginger, or rather I am. There’s coffee pods near the keurig and some iced tea in the fridge. Help yourself!

Let’s be honest for a moment: There are a lot of us struggling right now. Some are struggling with things like a shift in work dynamics while working from home. Some are struggling because their job no longer exists. Some are struggling because, while their jobs are safe because they are deemed essential, it puts them on the front-lines of this pandemic.
Almost none of us were prepared for this new life, and for most of us, it has us questioning our sense of what is normal.
