When we were driving back from Florida last week, I took some questions on my Instagram. They’re all still up in my Stories, but I thought I’d share some of them here, too.
Q&A sessions like this are often a reminder of how many people who follow me on social media don’t necessarily know my books all that well.
Q&As can also be a way of kind of summarizing mood and what folks are dealing with and what I might want to write about next. A lot of the questions were about depression and anxiety. (Here is more on my “very simple rule” for dealing with “sundowning.”)
This list is from Keep Going.
I really want to write about this in a book.
My favorite thing to say about stuff I don’t like.
Almost every answer in a Q&A is some form of “one day you’ll be dead” and “keep going.” (This, on obituaries, is from Show Your Work!)
I get a lot of questions about making art with kids. I should probably write a book on the subject, but until then, see my post, “The Pram in the Hall” and my “parenting” tag.
I miss movies.
