Well, what can I say? Like vast chunks of humanity I’ve been trapped indoors, feeling anxious about the shape of the world, and trying to mute that anxiety by keeping myself occupied.
One small aspect of the pandemic I’ve noticed through social media is that the crisis has drawn a sharp division between the haves and have-nots in terms of free time. I’m fortunate enough to be in the privileged class, and so I’ve been using my time to get stuck into my personal projects. After all, I’ve got a novel to work on, along with two non-fiction books (plus an article series that’ll soon be long enough to turn into a book itself) and a couple of script ideas. Not to mention the comic I’m writing, Midnight Widows – I’ve recently set up a Twitter account to promote it.
No time for me to worry: onward ho!
