Erin Green Author - blog
I hope you and yours are safe and well. I've been in lockdown for nearly three weeks and so far, so good. I've kept myself busy with my usual daily writing routine as I am half way through a new project. It originally started as a rewrite but that has developed somewhat, but I'm pleased with the current progress.
Outside of writing, I've ploughed through numerous reading books in various genres as a means of escaping the modern world. I didn't watch 'The Stranger' recently shown via Netflix so purchased Coben's book instead - a gripping read and a worthy recommendation. I've returned to my Classics with a reread of Austen's 'Emma' and continued my 2020 Agatha Christie Challenge reading 'Appointment With Death'. I've attempted to participate more in my on-line bookclub via Goodreads - which offers groups for every kind of reader - a trawl through the discussion forums certainly throws up some fairly polarized ideas about specific authors/books!
My church bellringing ceased weeks ago, so I've filled my evenings by digging out my knitting needles and crafting a project. I've opted to knit blankets for a premature baby unit who uses traffic light colours to denote the level of care required. It's kept me busy whilst enabling me to watch numerous films, which I don't tend to do.
I've continued with my sketching which is a weekly occurrence for me. Last weekend, I monopolised the dining room for the day and indulged with my pencils. I was pleased with the end results given my lack of tuition, but hey, if you don't try you'll never know! This weekend, I might step outside of my comfort zone and attempt a watercolour or two.
Stay safe and stay creative, folks xxx
