Okay, my April is not going as I had hoped. I’ve been in some kind of funk – not a sad one – but a funk all the same. I’ve not wanted, nor had the energy, to do much at all. I realize I should be taking advantage of all this extra time, so I made a quarantine bucket list! Maybe it’ll help snap me back to life!
It’s not a long list, but it’ll give me things to do while at home. Have you made a quarantine bucket list? If so, let me know in the comments what’s on it!
Besides making lists, I also love good quotes. We’re still dealing with this weird and unprecedented situation, so I wanted to share some uplifting quotes. I don’t know about you, but I sure can use them!
Here’s to you and me making the most of the quarantine!
Helped are those who create anything at all, for they shall relive the thrill of their own conception and realize a partnership in the creation of the Universe that keeps them responsible and cheerful.
I hate to say it, but I’ve been in a funk. I’m sure many have with all that is going on in the world these days, but personally, I’m tired of the funk. I want to get back to some sort of normal, and one of the few areas of my life I can exert control over is my writing life, which has suffered since the COVID-19 outbreak. I wish I could say that I’ve taken advantage of the time off from my usual routine to concentrate more on writing, but I have not. The emotional toll and having my kids and husband at home have given me an excuse to throw everything, including writing, out the window.
Camp NaNoWriMo has always been an excellent motivator for me, so I made sure to sign up for April. I love writing the first draft of a manuscript in 30 days. It’s usually pretty ugly and messy, with plot holes and unintentional tense switches, but it’s a manuscript! And when the 30 days are over, I’ve got something tangible that can only improve.
So, starting in April, I’m going to actively work on my WIP, as well as dragging myself out of my funk! I hope it’s a good month, not just for me, but for you too!
Starting this month, I’d like to try getting more personal with my posts. All work and no play, right? But really, I can’t always blog about my writing life – it’s just not that exciting. Not that my regular life is exciting, but it’s nice to switch things up sometimes!
So, these are some of my favorite things. It’s not an exhaustive list, nor is it listed in any sort of order. Here goes:
