Today’s question -
When your writing life is a bit cloudy or filled with rain, what do you do to dig down and keep on writing?
What writing life?
I think I actually write better when times are darker. Writing is an emotional release for me and I use it as such to get through those rainy days.
Now if someone could just give me a 40-hour day, I could write.

by Jay Chalk
Samuel Moore is living a dystopian lie…
After a civil war, the North American Commonwealth now dominates the eastern half of the former United States. Controlled by a totalitarian regime called the Directorate, the NAC demands compliance, awareness, and unity. A Directorate member and teacher, Sam enjoys the benefits while skirting the forbidden.
Then Sam encounters Katie Spencer. She sneaks him a short wave radio and he hears the Western Alliance broadcasts. Katie also reveals a video she captured of NAC death camps. Sam realizes he’s involved in a nightmare that could shake every foundation.
With the video broadcast date approaching and several students desperate to escape to the Western Alliance, Sam is forced to decide. Remain loyal to the Directorate? Or abandon all he’s ever known to fight for freedom?
