My Writing Window Was Nudged Amid a Pandemic

Hello subscribers, visitors and welcomed newcomers! It’s been awhile since I’ve posted here on my little writing space. It was kind of intentional and somewhat unintentional, as far as, the stretch of time I had put my writing aside.  I think it was a combination of writers block, lack of inspiration, pouring myself into self-reflection and, quite possibly, a bit stuck in some challenging times that life brings. 

Then, there was the onset of the COVID19 quarantine.  Ugh 😕 But, like many, you may have experienced a creative re-birth. Or, maybe your closets and living spaces are super clean and organized right now! For others the isolation revealed a higher level of anxiety and sadness to your world. So many mixed feelings and uncertainties were thrown on all of us. I’m hoping each of you had some degree of enlightenment or positive change during this time and you continue to find ways to persevere. 

This brings me to what I discovered. I stumbled upon an online writing group that was promoting a summer writing contest for short fiction stories. The writing prompt needed to be on the subject of isolation told in a maximum of 1500 words. I’m guessing with our recent world situation, the topic was probably a deliberate choice.

Anyway, this may have been the writing inspiration I was waiting for.
