If Anne Frank Could Do It...

"I don't think of all the misery, but of the beauty that still remains."

~ Anne Frank

Anne Frank was an adolescent, hiding in the back of a warehouse for two years from people who wanted her dead, and she still found a way to be creative. I'm sure you can do it in a wimpy little pandemic.

Of course, I'm not suggesting you write the next blockbuster, "Love in the Time of Corona," cuz you are not the first person to think of that. Nor do I think you should start writing a diary simply for the purpose of trying to make millions off it when this shitstorm is over. Anne Frank was one of a kind.

But this time being so historic, so life-altering, I can imagine many of us are having some whacky creative juices flowing (note: I hate the term "creative juices." Seriously- gross.)

If you don't know how you want to communicate your thoughts, then just start jotting them down when they come to you, either on a real notepad or in your iPhone's notepad. Then, when you feel inspired to write a play, a movie, a TV series, or whatever, you'll be ready with all of your unique ideas.
