Can I share a little secret with you? I'm losing my motivation to read and write. It's a common thread I'm seeing on Facebook that a person's creativity is becoming a casualty of lockdown. We're all supposed to have this extra time to do something. But often it's not time that prevents us. It's motivation.
I did a quick count of all the paperbacks on my shelf that I have yet to read. 91. I have 91 books on my "to be read" pile. That isn't counting the number on my Kindle. I should be devouring these books.
Instead, I'm binge-watching "The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" and "Titans".
So how am I finding motivation in lockdown? I'm sharing covers for two of my upcoming writing projects. I don't normally do this. I normally wait until a book is released to share the covers, but this time I need a little extra push.
"Earth Arrested" book 2 in my sci-fi thriller series "Earth Quarantined"
"The Widow Catcher" a suspense thriller by my thriller alter-ego Jonette Blake
There, now I've shared these covers with you, I have to make them happen.
Thank you for letting me enter your world. Stay safe and healthy wherever you are.
If you've lost motivation too, don't be disheartened. It happens to everyone. And you know what else, maybe taking a break is a good thing.
Till next time, thanks for staying tuned in.
