Life is changing for us all. Fortunately, in the past, the human race has proven itself quite adaptable. I certainly hope we can adapt to our new conditions. Don’t expect anything deep or philosophical here. There are plenty of people out there, blogging about their pandemic experiences and how they believe it will change behaviors.
Nothing so prosaic here tonight. A few random thoughts about my own life. Possibly a bit of whine and just a little trepidation.
I’ve been back at the regular job for two weeks. It’s been difficult finding the flow again. While off work for 45 days, I worked, not 9-5 exactly, more like 1pm to 3am. Definitely a night owl. My production for writing, book reviews, pitches, and more were better than the previous six months.
It’s all about time management. Comes down to I get an average of 90 minutes a day to working my writing.
Off today, and I did get a lot done. Edited and submitted a story for a contest on Reedsy. Looked like fun, and I had one on file that fit this week’s contest. Wrapped up a chapter and sent it to my collaborator. All while home ill. More done in one day while ill than the last two weeks.
Oh, the illness. Spoke to my doctor, and though the symptoms could all be caused by other things, he wants me tested for COVID because of several underlying medical issues.
So yeah, that where I am right now. I know one who has died from this, two that have had it and recovered. Both of them younger with no underlying medical issues and quarantined at home. Watching them go through it was heart wrenching.
For now, I am going to try and sleep on it. Thanks for letting me ramble.
Update: Received my results on 5/25…Negative for Covid. Seems have bad sinus infection and my heart is acting up again. Rock on 2020.
As always, thank you for reading.
