Hello Ebi! Hello Fam!
On Saturday, I posted on my Twitter, IG and FB pages, ‘Writers! Socially Distance Yourselves from Procrastination!’ One of my writing compadres said in amusement that she felt like my content was directed at her. LOL! At such a time when we are stuck in our homes against our will, it is easy to fall victim to idleness and boredom. If you are not diligent, you’ll get in the habit of putting off work for the next day. Then weeks have passed, and you have nothing to show for it.
If you are like me, you may feel like you’ve begun the descent down that rabbit hole – where days have passed with little work done. Not being around friends and family, being unable to venture out, listening to local/world news in connection to the pandemic can cause us to despair. But this is the best time to hunker down and get some real work done, and I am determined to do just that. I am committed to shaking off this negativity.
But you may be wondering, what’s the best way to do that? Depending on your situation, if you are working from home, perhaps setting aside an hour or two before your 9 to 5 may help. If you have children, maybe working after everyone has settled down would be best. I find the weekends most flexible – like most of us, I’ll have nothing scheduled, so being constructive will help me feel like I’ve accomplished something.
Amachi was speaking loud and clear before all this started. I don’t want her or her kin to lose their voices, so I will get to work on my edits. Have you found that current events have left a pallor over you – effected your will to write? If so, I would love to hear about it. As writers, we must continue to push one another to reach our goals. Even during crappy times like these. 😊
Ibukun! Blessings! and Keep Healthy Fam!
