Back to the writing mill after four days off over Easter. On my virtual desk, I have two novels to complete, and two TV projects.
Work hasn’t changed much here during the lockdown. It’s still me in front of a screen, roaming around the inside of my head.
But work isn’t just the productive part. My well of inspiration was always fed by getting out into the world, to the pubs and bars, to cafes and restaurants, lounging on the common, seeing life, seeing stories unfold around me.
That’s all changed.
Social media has really come into its own in the last few weeks. It’s no substitute, but I’ve found it a lifeline for keeping up with friends and work colleagues. Isolation isn’t good for the soul. We’ll always find ways to connect.
(You can find me on Insta and Twitter, both @Chadbourn.)
