When everything changes, you have to keep going anyway. That’s what we’re learning from these last few months, I think. It’s what I’m trying to apply to my novel, too.
Writing about characters who aren’t social distancing is actually a bit difficult. This is a side effect of the COVID-19 pandemic that I must admit I did not expect.
Super Roommates began filming on Friday the 13th of March. It was amidst a snowstorm, and there was an accident on Deerfoot, so I arrived on set after pretty much all my cast & crew, but our location still wasn’t available to us until fifteen minutes after our call time so it wasn’t bad. Yet.
I was going to quit acting in November.
Well, I was supposed to quit this time last year.
I didn’t really consider it my resolution, but around January 1st, I got fed up with how long SC, my big bad book, was taking to finish. My—well, my resolution, to this issue was to write 500 words before bed every day so I’d finish it faster. And for the first week, with the help of late nights and coffee shops, I did it.
I’ve spent the last few days posting on my Bookstagram and plotting out my novel, SC. If I’m going to start over again, I’ll make sure it’s the last time I do so, at least to this extent.
January is dangerous. It can make you think about what you’ve done and what you’re going to do, and whether it is enough.

I’ve been writing this blog for three years now and you guys have been following, either from the beginning or just recently, and I love you all for it. Without each and everyone one of you, I’d feel like I was screaming into the abyss. So as a token of my appreciation, I decided I’d hold my first ever giveaway.
I did a tag thing and answered all the questions and was about to tag people at the very end when my internet decided to go kaput and I lost everything.
I am now saving everything I write as soon as I write it.
But I’ll stop saying ‘save’ now because I can see how that could get annoying.
It’s weird being home and seeing high school friends, whether by accident, by appointment, or on Facebook. At university it was great being surrounded by people with similar interests as me. Lots of my uni friends do Creative Writing and we can talk about the possibilities for future employment as journalists, teachers, authors, and more! We can trade works and build each other up to be better and it’s good to know I’m not alone on this precarious road I’ve chosen.
