What is Quarantine Publications?
Quarantine Publications was born during COVID-19. Self-isolation finally freed some time for me to go over my 20 years worth of writings. I had so much time, I wrote and wrote and wrote. (and made 271 Tik Toks).
Productivity In Isolation
Shakespeare allegedly wrote King Lear during the bubonic plague. Victor Hugo wrote “Les Miserables” during self-isolation.
Our every day lives are often littered with noise from obligations – work, family, pick-ups, drop-offs, exercise, cooking, cleaning, self-care.
When quarantine happened, I was able to abandon all the noise and just focus on writing (mostly editing and learning self-publication) in my pajamas.
I have spent most of my life writing, first to my “Dear Diary”, and later, to my blog. My advice to young writers is to WRITE. I attended a seminar last year in Hawaii, where Garth Stein (author of The Art of Racing in the Rain) gave the best motivational speech ever. He said, “The easiest thing in the world to do is to NOT write.”
ALL of us have a story inside to tell. Just log onto Facebook and Instagram. Everyone these days is SO obsessed with self-obsession. But the easiest thing in the world is to NOT write.
Which is why, if you want to be a writer, you need to WRITE. Most of my content is raw and unedited, written in between clients, pick ups, drop offs, and cooking and cleaning.
When it was time – coronatime! – I finally got a chance to read over all this and formulate it into a book.
If you have writings that you want to publish, I can help you!
