For the first time since I began writing, my daily planner has NOTHING scheduled for the coming week.
I have often tried to come up with four or five days for writing only, but have never put more than two days together back-to-back.
I’m NOT saying I would choose to have the world experience a pandemic just so I can achieve a few days with no medical appointments, lunch dates, errands, and so on.
Far from it!
But, my purpose here is to say that if you are also experiencing some down time from other obligations, why not take the opportunity to write?
It may be human nature to want to watch television, play video games, or text friends. Nothing wrong with any of those.
However, what about following the familiar advice we’ve all heard before:
“When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.”
