Today I am proud to host Marie Landry talking about how she keeps going, keeps writing despite difficult times, and how she personally makes it work when life sucks. Her LGBTQ+ book, Take Them by Storm, is a lesbian YA novel, third in a series that doesn’t need to be read in order.

 

Almost everyone I know can agree on one thing if nothing else: 2016 sucked. For me personally it was one of the most difficult years of my life, and then throw in what was happening around the world and my brain felt like a chaotic mess.

All of this affected my writing. I had so much going on in my life that was preventing me from writing, and then throw in depression and anxiety that was exacerbated by everything happening in the world, and I lost most of my motivation. I was easily distracted. For the first time in my life, I didn’t want to write. It wasn’t the refuge it had always been, a way to escape the real world. Instead I buried myself in other people’s writing, and I channeled my creativity into bookstagram.
