I haven’t posted on here in quite a while, because I’ve been busy writing. Two novels, actually. But there are times recently when I haven’t felt like writing. With so much happening in the world–the coronavirus, elections, Brexit, impeachment hearings, etc., I find it hard to focus and hard to be creative.

It’s times like these that I wonder if I should continue to write, or not. Many writers face writer’s block from time to time, but is this something else?

I hear on the news that we should avoid crowds to limit our risks of getting the virus. But how concerned should we really be? Sometimes I think I’d be better off avoiding the news on TV and on the internet. Maybe then I would be able to focus on being creative.

But if I get sick, I won’t be doing much writing, either. It’s a conundrum.
