Last week, the book blog “A Life Through Books” posted an interview with me that focuses on my writing process. I enjoyed responding to all the questions, especially the last, which asked what comes next.
Here’s my answer:
An effective way to rebuild a damaged community is to build something together for the common good. We’ve fallen into a great divide in our politics, and now we’re physically separated for our own health and well-being. The pandemic is the scourge of our time, but it’s also helping us rediscover our common humanity, neighbor to neighbor. That’s a good thing. How we come out of this, whether we fall back into old patterns of self-righteous demonization, or build together for the common good, will set a trajectory for the lives of generations to come. It starts in the local community. I want to write about that.
