I'm wondering because I've seen so many varied reports from writers on Facebook and other places.
Some seem to have given up writing to deep clean their house. I can assure you that hasn't happened to me. Oh, I've thought of it, but that's about as far as I've gotten. I pay a granddaughter to do the floors and other chores that I don't do anymore.
Other writers seem to have used this time when the world as we know it as been put on slow to write like crazy, producing even more than they have before.
For me, it's not the virus that's affected my writing, it's getting writing jobs that have taken up my time. I also have done some promoting by offering the first book in my Deputy Tempe Crabtree series free for 5 days. That paid off in over 600 copies being downloaded, and now people are buying copies of other books in the series--which, of course, was the whole point of the freebie.
I'm more fortunate than many in the fact that I have family living with me, next door, and close by and I still see them all. So, some parts of my life haven't changed.
I am working on a new Rocky Bluff P.D. mystery and I'm anxious to get back to it and finish.
I've lamented all the in-person book events that have been cancelled--but lo and behold, I have two events coming up--a holiday boutique being held at the nearby art gallery--masks to be worn by all, and another event that hasn't quite been firmed up as yet.
Because I want people to know when I'm smiling, I purchased clear full face masks to wear.
So, tell me, how has this nasty virus affected you and your writing?
