Questions, Corona, Writing and more.

Hello all!

So I know I’m not a regular poster on either of my blogs but I am going to try and post more commonly from now on. I have a few things I want to say today and I have a few questions as well.

During quarantine, I am struggling with reading material. My library is closed, I have limited access to e-books and audiobooks are just not the same. So if anyone out there has anything. ANYTHING. I will read it. Let me know in the comments and I will devour it. Thanks:)

I wanna write more on here and my reading blog, but I don’t know what you want. I’m going to try no matter what but if you have any suggestions of things you might want the tell me, please. I get that not a lot of people read this so I might be writing to no one, but you only live once so I may as well try. If you want anything from writing tips, writing prompts, reading lists, book reviews or suggestions let me now.

So as we all know covid19 is upon us. And by the looks of it, it’s not going away. Everybody knows it’s tough and a lot of people are finding it hard. But I wat to let you all know that it will be okay, there is going to be an end to all this madness. It’s okay to feel alone and scared, it’s also okay to feel good. I know, the first time I went into quarantine I thrived, I was happier than I had been in a long time. I knew about all the people dying and I felt bad for being so happy when everyone else was sad. But I want anyone who is reading this to know that it is okay to be happy. No matter what is going on in the world if you feel light and free and on top of the world, or if you are just better than you were, own it. Keep it. Hold on to that feeling, it is precious. And for those of you who find it hard to smile, or feel so heavy, or like you wanna cry at the smallest thing, that is okay too. It is a stressful time right now. Finding your happy place is an exercise my favorite teacher told me about. It’s pretty self-descriptive. All you need to do is find a place where you feel lighter than before. Whether it’s alone or with your family, or on a call with one of your friends. Whether it’s inside or outside, it’s all up to you. So, find your happy place and when you feel extra heavy, just go there and let go of everything. And smile. No matter if it’s real or not. Smile to yourself, smile at your family, smile at the people you see while walking even if they can’t see your face.

Thanks, 🙂

Thanks library! I have been rereading old books because the of the access issue. And I did do a bit of book panic buying but I am also finding it hard to concentrate. So rereading old favourites is what I'm doing.
