Writing Tips| Why You Should Keep Writing During the #COVID19 Pandemic
Before I start with my writing tips, I first want to say that I hope that each of you reading this blog is safe, sound and healthy. Please comment below to give me an update on how each of you are doing during this pandemic and its quarantine.
When I thought about writing this post about coronavirus, I originally wanted to make this post super long just to make sure that I didn’t miss any of my writing tips. Because this pandemic has changed everyone’s normal schedule habit in such a short time frame, I decided to try to cram my writing tips into a short and sweet post.
Here are three short and simple reasons you should keep writing throughout the coronavirus pandemic:
1) Writing is in demand
If you’re in the mood to volunteer SAFELY to give back to your community, now is the time to step up and write. Check with local newspapers in your area and volunteer as a writer to help spread accurate and helpful information about coronavirus. Now is a good time to use both your social platforms and writing skills for a good cause and working with a larger writing platform makes your writing more credible.
2) Don’t Stop Working On Your Project
If your goal is to release your upcoming book or be more active on your blog, no is NOT the time to stop working on those projects. Stay on track with your release dates and publish goals. If for any reason you decide to stop your project in mid-stride, please continue to PROMOTE, PROMOTE, PROMOTE your project. You’re able to do this by using press releases, blogger networks or by simply posting on social media.
3) Now Is The Time To Build Your Audience
Because more cities, states, and countries are in a lockdown/quarantine status more people are at home reading and watching more videos. According to Forbes, more than 500 million people are watching Facebook videos PER DAY. Please keep in mind that these numbers were published prior to the coronavirus. No pressure but this is an amazing time to share, share and share more of your writing content and you may want to that either by blog or video.
Here’s another quick tip: I love sharing pieces of my published books by using Kindle Quotes. Kindle Quotes is just another way authors can either share their writing with others or share work from their books or their favorite authors.
Here’s an example of what Kindle Quotes looks like below:
