In this unprecedented time, there have been a lot of suggestions on newscasts as to how we can keep our emotional health in tact by sticking to a schedule of work/play at home.
Our writing time is no different.
Keeping to our normal routine as much as possible will do wonders for our outlook, as well as keeping our skills honed.
On the other side of things, we can improve our skills by spending some of our “free” time reading, doing research for our stories, and taking online writing classes.
So, I guess the name of the game is to improve what we can, while at the same time making sure to keep essential skills in place.
Finally, connect with author friends and others on the internet who are writing as well. It’s a great time for sharing ideas! Using Google Docs, Zoom, and other popular programs will still allow your groups to function until things get back to “normal.”
