Working and writing my way through social isolation

It’s Thursday of my second week in social isolation. I’m thankful that I have a job that affords me the opportunity to work from home. Being a technical writer is already a very solitary job at times. However, that still didn’t prepare me for working from home during a pandemic.

Here are some things I have going on right now:

  • Spent the morning doing some research for a work project
  • Attended the IDG TECHtalk Twitter Chat at lunch and that inspired some new pitch ideas
  • Splitting this evening kicking off a new TechTarget article and some personal writing
  • The silence outside my house isn’t bothering me as much as it did earlier in the week

How are you spending your time in Coronavirus-forced social isolation?
