Hard to believe that it’s flown by so fast.
I do hope all of you are staying well during this very interesting of times. If, like us, you’ve been encouraged to stay home and avoid contact in groups larger than 10 people, it may seem like this is a writer’s dream. Time home to work on our creative endeavors, no commutes, no loud crowd drowning out the voices in our heads…
Beware of too much silence though. Too little activity can be as bad as too much. So, in this home stretch, I encourage you all to add in a small fitness/activity goal for your own creativity. And no… Netflix marathons don’t really count as running. 😉
Add some extra walking in. Find a local park or Nature Reserve and see an area you haven’t looked closely at before. Try making some baskets at a local park. Use Youtube videos to learn some new dance moves or some other new skill (there are some nice beginner guitar videos there).
And if you’re used to working with a partner, try adding sprints and meetings via Skype, Facetime, FB Messenger, Google Hangouts… the list is pretty big these days.
Most of all, even while you need to isolate yourselves because of the virus, you shouldn’t isolate yourself from the world. It’s where stories happen. It’s where creativity lives and is ready to meet you.
Here’s your linky!
