I’m seeing pieces about how writers are disappearing from the site for a myriad of reasons over the past few years, a lot of it blaming more recent medium changes.
Yet the eerie thing is that no one mentions that we were (are!!!) in a pandemic that severely impacted all of our lives.
Some or the writers we came to love passer away; yet others face disability from long-Covid and publish at a different speed or not at all, given energy.
Yet even more are going back to work as things are open up again.
