Diary of a bad writer – Week 73

Diary of a bad writer banner

Wednesday, April 15th, At Lunch In A Close To Empty Work Place – The best way to improve my writing skill is reading. During this crazy time in my life, I’m reading as much as I can. My writing style is hiding in between the lines of my favorite novel.  (and audiobook)

Audible is providing free audio-books for a short time. Take advantage of their generosity…while it lasts.

    Got the kids at work on to this (Audible) or at least encouraged them. It’s weird being on a rota and then working from home.
    Stay safe.

    Read, read and read some more. I think reading can do and be so much. A source of inspiration, a comfort, a way to expand our horizons, to soothe our souls… I hope you can fill your time and the quietude with all the wonderful books and audiobooks you can manage. Stay safe, Darnell.x

    I hope this means you’re enjoying the lack of people at work, using the time to escape somewhere in a story. The last audiobook I listened to was the Stand on the train to work. It took me away from a boring commute and into a desperate disaster. Now I don’t commute because I’m hiding from a desperate disaster. I have no idea what I’m saying here, just your post made me think of it 🙂
    Stay safe

      My post is a distraction from this crazy time. Glad it made you think about… nothing, and, anything 😉 Be safe as well.

    It’s interesting: I practice mindfulness meditation, so that simile has many connotations as well as the obvious one: continuity tempered by impermanence; our place in the natural world and our need to revere it, etc.

    Thanks, Darnell!

    There’s nothing better than losing yourself in a book! It’s nice to have someone read to you too 🙂
