Unfortunately, writing has fallen down the list in the last couple of years as family and other commitments have taken priority. I never even considered applying for any kind of help, but when I read about Time to Write, it seemed to relate very closely to my circumstances.
I made the application back in December when the coronavirus was just a speck on the horizon. Ironically, I now have quite a lot of time to write (although it’s still a challenge in my household), but I’m immensely grateful for the opportunity to develop my writing and see where I can take it.
All writers who were accepted onto the programme have been asked to write a response to the crisis we are facing, in particular, the aspect of isolation. I’ve just begun to give this some thought and am hashing out a few ideas.
I’m really excited to get going on it and feel thankful to have a project to focus on in these unnerving times.
Look forward to sharing what I’ve come up with further down the line!
