out of the loop
I have been home all week.
Usually I meet with my writerly buddies at the Sekrit Writing Location, but this week it just wasn’t possible.
I also usually attend my weekly morning critique group, but I had to skip that.
And then there’s the monthly evening critique group, but it’s not time yet.
Sometimes I go out with a friend for dinner. But that didn’t happen this week.
I’ve been home caretaking, doing errands and writing. In complete and utter isolation.
DON’T DO THAT.
I feel like I did when I was stuck home with toddlers. I MEAN EXPERIENCING THE JOYS OF YOUNG MOTHERHOOD.
Find someone to do something creative with, even if it’s not writing–see a play, take an art class, join a book club.
Find things to drive your creativity engine.
