Self Isolation Productivity

Covid 19 mania and writing goals

You’d have to be a hermit not to know that Covid 19 has taken over everyone’s life. (And if you ARE a hermit, then you’re ahead of the curve!) School has been suspended, borders closed, streets are deserted and store shelves are bare.

As a potentially ‘at risk’ person due to my heart condition, I’ve been taking it seriously from the get-go, practicing social distancing, extreme hand washing, and self isolation before it was sanctioned.

For the most part, I enjoy my own company. I often say that I don’t really understand boredom since I have so many things I like to do like writing, sewing, painting etc. However, I must admit that recently I’ve begun to feel less interested in these activities. Perhaps it’s anxiety from watching too much Covid 19 coverage on TV, or maybe it’s just loneliness. In any case, I decided it was time to force myself out of this funk and set some goals for myself. For a long time I moaned about the lack of time. Now that I have it in abundance, why am I squandering it?

So… here’s the plan. I decided to set a deadline for finishing the third book in the Three Strand Cord Series and make it public. That’s it! I WILL have Tempest Tossed finished and ready for beta readers by the end of April!

My cupboards are fairly well stocked, so I should be fine. Now it’s time to get back to writing… Time is ticking.

    πŸ‘ Looking forward to your new book! I struggled with managing my time at first too. Now I have so much to do I can’t get it all done in a day. Working at home learning curve. πŸ™„

      As a person who already works from home, I feel blessed that things haven’t changed that much… except my own attitude! I think too much media has made me feel more anxious than I should feel… Blessings Pam!
