Writing Meets and Covid

Motivation can be a strange thing, especially with me. I am lucky that I have an understanding wife and I have an office in which to work. Many people have to write anywhere they can but I have my Batcave, Sanctuary, Den. Whatever you want to call it, but, for me it can be both a boon and a curse, there are a lot of distractions in there and sometimes I can lose hours in there and have nothing to show for it. So I am glad when I can go to my writing group meets as it means I have some dedicated writing time, and it works quite well usually, we catch up which takes some of the time but then we get some words down and the atmosphere is great.

As we are in a lockdown (however relaxed as it is) we obviously cannot meet up so we thought it would be a good idea to get some online meets down. It seemed like a good idea, but in reality, it hasn’t worked as well as we had hoped. it seems harder to get people to want to meet up “online” between other commitments and getting the technology to work, we just haven’t had much luck. So sometimes it can only be two of us, a couple of the regulars have just had babies so this occupies most of their time as well, but they try as much as they can, sometimes getting more writing then me done, and I have no excuse.

This has meant that sometimes I am online supposed to be writing but I find I am pottering about on the internet waiting for someone else. I know what you are going to say, there is no reason I couldn’t be writing in those times. But, I am someone that works better when I am held to account. Hopefully, this virus will do one soon and I can get back to normal meets. In the meantime, it would be good if I could get my ass into gear regardless of who else is there.

Also, I was looking back through my posts and notice I seem to post that picture of a baby showing a fist waaaay too much, need to keep a check on that.

Anyway stay safe and keep writing, or working, or whatever 🙂
