The Joys of Self-isolation

Hello fellow creatives!

News of Covid-19 is a big thing across the world right now and has affected everyday life . I don’t know about you all but I am a creature of habit. I love my routines and I also happen to enjoy knowing what day of the week it is! Of course being pregnant and asthmatic means I fall under the category of ‘High Risk’, so guess whose currently having to self-isolate herself?

As necessary as this all is, I do miss my simple comforts and have tried my best to come up with an easy strategy to maintaining my sanity and cabin fever in family life and work so that all is not lost!

However I can’t deny the positives that have com from being stuck at home for 26 days and counting…

  • The hubby is home indefinitely, meaning my son gets quality time with his dad which means that I get plenty of alone/reading/work time.
  • I have been able to focus more closely on my writing and getting into the swing of a daily word count.
  • My time management has become much more efficient and balancing home life and work life has become surprisingly easier
  • My writing has definitely sped up in comparison to before quarantine.

Being able to push myself everyday with my writing has definitely upped my creative juices and my writing flow hasn’t been this consistent in months. Discovering that if I push past my own self-inflicted writer’s block, and write a little every day while I’m able to, the content I create is still high quality and something to be proud of.

That isn’t to say I haven’t got my work cut out for me when the eventual process leads to the dreaded editing phase!

But for now the writing process for book #2 of the Neverlander Series is coming along smoothly, and that is something to be joyous of. I can only hope that when the world stops its madness and we all return to normal life, that I can keep the momentum going!

Happy Easter everyone!
