Productivity in the Time of Coronavirus



Dear Shakespeare,


I am not writing anything close to the likes of King Lear with my increased "alone time." Oh. Right. I don't have an increase of alone time. I'm still working 40 hours a week at my day job. I'm still trying to stay healthy and walk every day, including during what would be my commute time each day. I'm still responsible for my doggos. I'm also still writing five hundred words per day, but it's hard to write sex scenes when you're tired and sad.



Please share how someone who has a very full dance card and avoids people anyway was supposed to see an uptick in productivity.


No love,

Edie


P.S. Fuck your damn heavy tome of plays. My back still hurts from carrying that thing all over campus over twenty years ago. These kids today with their Kindles have no idea how easy they have it.
