So here we are, back in lockdown. I honestly didn't think that we'd be here at this point. As I work from home and don't really go out much, for the most part living in lockdown hasn't really affected my day-to-day life and I actually really enjoyed it last year.
One thing that does seem to be a symptom of having everyone around all the time though is that my creative mojo seems to have up and left me! I just don't have the drive to design or make or create anything. The same happened last year. I'm pretty sure that part of it is a time issue; homeschooling the kids does take a chunk out of my day, but thankfully they're smart kids and don't need too much intervention so it's not completely immersive. Maybe part of it is my introverted nature - I do like to spend time on my own and with everyone around I don't get the chance to just sit with myself and recharge as much as I normally would.
So I'm getting through the days, but I don't feel like I'm making much progress. In the past when I've felt lost and directionless making a good plan and daily schedule has really helped to get me back on track. You can't exactly schedule creativity, but it seems like a good place to start.
