You’ve got time on your hands.
The fact that many of us are not participating in many social events these days frees up several hours a week or more for our writing, doesn’t it?
So, why when I talk to other authors, do I hear that it isn’t the case? That their time is being used up with anything but?
I am told that naps, computer games, and watching television are filling up all available “free time.”
So, that means productivity is down across the board.
Have we lost our drive… our desire to write?
Can I suggest that we review our goals … renew our purpose for writing in the first place?
It you write to encourage others, there has never been a time when your words of encouragement were needed more.
If you write to cheer people up … to give them reason to laugh… now’s the time they need your funny, uplifting stories the most.
If you write so you can transport your readers back to another time in history or forward to future times, this is your golden opportunity.
If you write so that your readers can escape the mundane or the fear of life in the present, they may be waiting for a book that only you will write.
So you know what that means, write?
