Chronicling the Days – Didi Gorman

In April 2020, we invited writers in Quebec to submit a story of a single day during the strange, uneasy time of coronavirus and pandemic, of social distancing and self isolation, of lockdown and quarantine.

We’re thrilled to announce that these stories have been gathered in Chronicling the Days: Dispatches from a Pandemic (Guernica Press). To learn more and buy the book, please visit

Please also join us on the QWF FB Community page, and let the authors know if their words resonated.

This piece is by Didi Gorman, writing on Tuesday, April 7, 2020.

Trying to Work Here

Is it morning yet? I open one eye and look at the clock. It’s 7:17 AM. Oh, well, I guess it’s time to get up. What day is it anyway?

To read the rest of the story, please support our community and check out Chronicling the Days: Dispatches from a Pandemic

  1. I know, right? Last Sunday, both my tablet and cell phone kept pinging with notifications from a Facebook messenger group, texts, emails and more. I love to hear from people, especially now, but sometimes I just need to turn everything off for a little while.
