Getting Interrupted: Writing During Quarantine When Everyone is Home

“The great enemy of writing isn’t your own lack of talent … it’s being interrupted by other people.” — Joyce Carol Oates. Well, ain’t that the truth!?

Besides life (you know, getting in the way) what have you been up to? I’m getting ready to release a new children’s book AND I’m also writing my novel again!

I’m chopping the project down to small chunks, writing one incident at a time. This way, although I may be interrupted (all day every day) I don’t have to worry about chronological order. I only have to concentrate on one scene at a time. Who’s in it? What do they want? What’s the body language? What’s the dialogue? More specifics can be added later but this is your starting point for the scenes within your chapters. #justwrite #keepwriting #michellespray
