Hello, dear lovely people,
I hope all of you are doing well. I pray for the health, safety, and well being of you and your families.
We are going through tough times and the only way we can sail through these days is by maintaining patience, hope, and faith in God. Everything will be fine in a few weeks. Just keep praying for everyone you know and for the world, on the whole.
It has been some time since I wrote an informal post like this one. The lockdown period has been different for me as it has been for all of us. Everyone has been going through a different struggle during this time. Different – but not difficult – as I believe that I am in a comfortable position as compared to what many others are going through.
For me, the lockdown period has been all about – more work, physically and mentally. My online consultations take up my mornings and evenings. Between them, I try to fit in cooking and other household chores. My husband works with the Government of India and he is in a job that is counted as emergency & essential services. So he is stuck out of town, on duty, and hasn’t been home since March 18th. He is safe, but away. So, here I am, taking care of home and kids, apart from clinic work that has shifted to the laptop.
On the whole, life is fine. Hectic and tiring. But nothing to complain, actually. The saving grace is that there are no time constraints, schedules to follow, or pressure of routine. No stress. No rush.
My prayers for the people worst hit by this phase – daily wagers, small businesses, people who are affected by Covid-19, and their family members. What they are going through is the real difficult phase and I hope things ease up for them, soon.
I am trying to squeeze in my writing in between. But I don’t take stress to do it. Writing has always been my stress-buster and I wish to keep it that way. The day it starts feeling like a pressure, it will lose it’s charm and will start appearing like a job. I don’t want that. So, I write and post whenever I feel like. But I understand that it becomes torture for people waiting for an update. To wait every day and not getting an update is frustrating. So, I decided to post a schedule regarding the updates, my posts, etc.
Here it goes –
Fridays – My Corner – My Blog post
Saturdays – Beyond Every Border
I will try to make all posts around 7 – 8 pm, IST. So, basically, it’s the weekend that I’ve decided so that we don’t forget 😀
This friday on My Corner – blog, I will tell you about the fate of all of my stories – What happens to Spark & Spice, Fire & Ice, Tangles & Ties…where you can read them… plus, all that is currently happening with The Masquerade… and more…
Also, I completed T & T on 26th March. It will be one month to its completion on 26th, i.e. 26th April. All T & T fans have read it by now. If you haven’t please finish reading it as I will take it down on 26th April. My past experiences have been disappointing and leaving a completed story online makes no sense.
Thank you for everything.
Lots of love,
