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. Not so much because I work for a small business retailer forced to temporarily close its doors. More because I work for a small-minded person who would rather cower in a corner than let a team of stronger-minded professionals step in to use our creativity and business sense to keep the store breathing. But he owns the place and doesn't listen to very good advice, so whatchya gonna do?
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?
