In Case of Emergency

I had scarcely imagined a pandemic looming in the future when I designed this sign for Every Day I Write the Book. This book, a product of many years of labor, is out this month. It is being offered for a truly remarkable fifty percent discount at the Duke University Press site. Go here and enter the code ‘Spring50.’ We are living in trying times. Start writing. Keep a journal. What you write today will become a part of history. Do not trust the State to be a keeper of your memory. Do not trust the media. In fact, you cannot even trust your memory. Write it down, write it down. And please, buy the book that Kirkus Reviews calls ‘an engaging, perceptive companion for all writers.’
