You will also find a list of bloggers signed up to the challenge that are worth checking out. The first Wednesday of every month, we all post our thoughts, fears or words of encouragement for fellow writers.
This month’s question — Are there months or times of the year that you are more productive with your writing than other months, and why?
Not months but ‘times of the year’–during COVID! I have been much more productive. For the first time, I am tackling two books at once–the last two in a prehistoric fiction trilogy I started a while ago–and I am flummoxed by how well it is going. It gives me the courage to write all three books in the next trilogy at once. I am a stay-at-home sort anyway, happiest at my computer with the phone under a pillow, but now, thanks to the pesky virus, no one expects anything else out of me. Potential distractions have gone away.
How about you? Are you writing better during COVID?
