Writing Love-Bite

You can write any time people will leave you alone and not interrupt you. Or rather you can if you will be ruthless enough about it. But the best writing is certainly when you are in love.

Ernest Hemingway

I can vouch for Ernest Hemingway’s statement.

I know well what it’s like to be left alone so you can write and not be interrupted. As a result, I assume that probably most writers feel the same way.

What I don’t know is why others would feel this way. From my point of view, I struggle to focus, and if I’m interrupted, I lose concentration. As a result, I become diverted from my inspirational path. The better news is that I recover most times quickly and can continue writing.

Writing
Love Writing

As it happened, my writing experience began late in my life. After meeting someone and falling in love, we moved in together and became partners. Partners, not only in the sense of cohabitation but also in having a coach. Someone who not only motivated but encouraged me to write. We would discuss every piece of writing I completed, followed by many suggestions and ideas.

In my case, there are many solutions to people’s interruption. One of these is finding a place where no people can interrupt you. Slipping down to our local library is one of the solutions. However, for me, ruthlessness is not an option; the reason for this would be my life philosophy. It is not possible for my partner to ever interrupt me.

Now, after more than 600 articles posted and 20,000 hits on my website, I can agree with Ernest Hemingway:

“But the best writing is certainly when you are in love.”

Covid-Wisdom Snippets From Peter.

Covid

What I have learned so far with the Covid pandemic will work to benefit me in times to come.

I’ve always understood that a goal is something identified, scheduled, and worked on until accomplished. This is why I prefer dreams; as I think of one saying, I want that, hey-ho, it eventually materializes – so much less stress!

I never complain, because a complainer is a pain and does nothing to encourage others; constant complaints are like a dripping tap – irritating

I am sure I can be forgiven for questioning the truth of what contemporary media presents as truth.

Our Covid Experience

I can only offer my personal experience of the Covid pandemic and not a word more. Experts from all quarters have blasted the media, with their wide range of opinions and suggested solutions. And this has all been too much for my mind to absorb. Medical people advised my wife and me to have flu injections. Because of our age and their concern for our vulnerability. The practitioners were surprised we had never had one before, given our age. We accepted their advice and then, two weeks later both my wife and I went down with what we thought was flu.

Human Pin Cushions

The Guru’s confirmed it was Covid. Our recovery mercifully was quick, but we went through our quarantine all the same. At this point we both went through two Covid Jabs and a booster jab; then another flu jab. These were spread over a series of months, just to make sure. We felt like pin cushions!

Our Fortunate Circumstances

Sharing a home with our children in a large property and a top-floor suite, the extreme lockdown did not affect us too badly. The sea-front and a shopping complex were within the five-kilometer restriction limit. Our shopping and walking were easily accomplished. And both of us are grateful for our fortunate circumstances.
