Sunday writing prompt: Lockdown!

Michael is setting the challenge today.

This week as we are all under some sort of lockdown, stay at home, shelter in place I invite you to write your thoughts at this time.
What are you doing to stay sane?
What would you like to be doing?

Your response can be your own story or simply a piece of fiction.


When this pandemic first hit, I didnt think it would be that bad. I thought we’d have maybe a few weeks of panic and then things would go back to normal. How wrong was I! I cannot believe the speed with which things progressed.

At the start of lockdown I thought it wouldnt be so bad, I thought, I could do with some more time at home. I wasnt thrilled about having to see my therapist online, but I thought we could manage for a few weeks, but then a few weeks turned into months.

I didnt have trouble accessing food and other items, but I did go out to the shops, when it was allowed, and when I couldnt, people were very kind and brought me what I needed, and I had my parents, I still saw them even when we were in lockdown.

Nowadays, I wear a mask when I am out in the shops or on public transport, but then, its mandetory here now. Your fined if you dont adhere to wearing one.

I did a lot of zoom groups when in lockdown, to keep busy, I went to a virtual group about self care, there was a weekly check in call from our local blindness agency, and my slimming world group was held over zoom also.

I’m sure glad lockdown is over now though. I really hope we never have to go back to that level of staying indoors again! Its hell! Plus, I really want to go back to seeing my therapist face to face!
