S'up, Insecure Writers? #IWSG

So, heeey, This is weird, right? All of us, no matter what part of the world we're in, living in fear of the same exact enemy? If that's not uniting, I don't know if anything ever will be.

I believe we writers are uniquely equipped to deal with the quarantine portion of this pandemic. I mean, we sort of live for shutting out the rest of the world so we can be alone with our characters, right? I have zero fear of getting bored if this thing goes on for several weeks...or more.

The financial part's a bit different. I'm among those whose employment status is in the darkest of gray areas. Oh well, it's not like I made much money, anyway, and my husband, who works for a big telecommunications company, is busier than ever keeping people connected, so it could be worse.

I'm going to enjoy my time of "disconnecting" from daily duties to refocus on things I want to do. I've come up w/ a list of 10 Clever Things to Do from Home - for FREE, and these are some of the things I'll be doing (in addition to getting caught up with my writer life).

So, how the heck are you?

This post is part of the:



Insecure Writer's Support Group (IWSG) Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds. This wonderful group for writers was begun by the one and clonely Alex J. Cavannaugh.

Sorry you're not working, but just stay home and write.

Boredom is not going to be an issue for me either. As long as I've got books to read or re-read, I'm good.

Employment in the darkest of grey areas . . . This is very true for many, right now. It's such a scary time and for many different reasons. I really enjoyed this post. Even though the content is heavy, your voice felt light. Thank you, and take care!

You're an INFJ? No wonder I like you. I vacillate between I/E and N/S, but I'm a strong feeler and judger. Great list you put together! Imma gonna check out those puzzles.

Major bummer about your boss's inflexibility in the midst of crisis. Hope you're getting some good rest time.

I would be pretty worried if I wasn't worried because I don't have a spouse anymore. Glad your husband is still working and is busy and that you are both healthy.

At least your husband's job is secure. So is my husband's. Which is good, because I soon won't be bringing in much of anything. And unfortunately my small business doesn't really qualify for assistance.
