Today is Monday and I have no blog post scheduled.
Before COVID-19, I would have had blog posts scheduled in advance. I would have had some time to think about topics. I would have tried to align them with nearby holidays or nano.
Now in this new bizarro world where weekend and weekdays have mixed and half the time I’m unsure what day of the week it is, I struggle with what to write. I am writing, just not blog posts. At least not in advance.
What are you doing to stay sane in the bizarro world?

I have a Covid write / work problem. The two mix like water and oil. Im considered essential personnel, but an empty office does not inspire, nor does coming home and staying away from family (with mask) I am writing, but at snail speed. Things aren’t going back to the way they were. I think once I come to terms with that, I’ll be back at my normal writing level.
I’m weirdly thriving in the new normal, but I have my struggles. My struggle is mostly with finding ways to exercise and get out of the house, which in turn affects how I feel. But otherwise, I’m falling back on habits I developed while unemployed. I fill my days with learning, reading, and over time more writing.
Trying my best not to beat myself up over the things I want done. Instead I’m focusing one day at a time and building streaks up again. So far, five short stories completed and today I made five days in a row of writing an hour of fiction per day.
