Stay at home they say!
Don’t go out they say!
Isolate yourself they say!
Well, the joke is on them! If you’re a writer, we already do all of this.
But, now that they are ordering me to stay in: I don’t want to stay in. I want to go outside and garden, or walk around as see who else is out and about. (There was no one out and about just to let you know) Just silly little me walking around.
Usually, I want to sit in my office and write and research until I’m starving or someone texts me to see how many words I have done in a day. I really want to write. I have eleven projects going right now. I know these projects must have a deadline, and goodness knows when they are due, but right now I am rebelling to the isolation rule.
I haven’t written much, but I have proofed one novel, outline another and printed out another to sit outside and go over. (Yes. I am one of those that likes to print (both sides) and write in bright red for all my corrections and notes.
So, all of us writers that must stay in and find something to do: WRITE! (and have fund) We will get through this together.
