‘God Speed the Vaccine’ by Ms Paige Turner – Blog 243
Karen Gray-Kilfoil who runs the Scribblers Writers’ group in Fish Hoek, Cape Town has asked me to help her out in a Live Webinair meeting next week. She would like a list of topics writers can tackle for my ‘When This is All Over’ anthology which I am putting together for the Rennie Grove nurses. I am anxious. Not about the topics which you can see below but by tuning in to Live Webinair and hitting on the right buttons. Like ‘Payees’ and ‘Amounts’ on bank transfers, where I always think what I have is going Lord Knows Where. Yep. Skype, Zoom and now Live Webinair gets me like that. Where is what I have going?
So if you are stuck for submissions (to firstname.lastname@example.org any age, free submission, just add a sentence or two about who you are and where you come from) here’s some ideas:
‘The World Inside You’: Cleaning your Home, Cleaning your Cupboards, Cleaning your Laptop Docs, Cleaning. Exercise, The Dog, Cyclists, Joggers, People Dodging, the Weather, Nature, The Sea, The Sky, The Garden, Finances, Health Issues, Washing our Hands, Home Arrest, Self-Isolation, Alcohol, The Evening Meal, Baking, Teeth, Hair, The Refuse, Working from Home, Home Schooling, Writing the Book, The People you Live With, Domestic Abuse, The Home, TV News, Wimbledon, The Memory of Sitting on Someone’s Knee, The Memory of Someone Sitting on Your Knee, Zoom, Skype, The Internet, Scams, Live Webinair.
‘The World out There’: The Germ, Plastic, Paper, Christenings, Weddings, Funerals, Car Batteries, Wimbledon, Protesters, Statues, Racism, Holidays, Frontline Workers, Carers, Refuse Collectors, Postal Workers, Cleaners, Bankers, Administrators, Taxi Drivers, Dentists, Shop Workers, Shopping for Food, Pollution, Planes, Trains, Boats, Cars, PPE, Ventilators, Public Lavatories, Hospital Visits, Private Worship, The New Vocabulary, Social Distancing, New Ways, The New Norm, Antibodies, The Vulnerable, The Two Metre Rule, Support Bubbles, The ‘R’ Factor, Lockdown, The Globe.
Phew – I must confess to a glass of wine at the 5.00 pm briefing every day which I watch as I long to hear, ‘There are no new Covid related deaths today and there is a vaccine you can access tomorrow.’
