COVID-19

An Anarch’s Pledge

If you need aid, I will try to give it,

If you are unheard, I will listen,

If you are sad, I will pull funny faces and make terrible puns until you are not,

If you start to sing, I will join in,

If you are alone – we are here.

We do these things because we are animals, we are humans, because we are interconnected.

What can I help with specifically?

Work-from-home advice, best remote-office practices, apps, and online work platforms if you need to translate your work life to digital.

Formatting, copy writing and copy editing, desktop publishing either for print or digital production.

Skype and Zoom connect-ups.

Creative (written word predominantly) advice, mentoring, story-wrangling, or encouragement.

Gaming theory, critique, beta-testing & nerdlandia (trad board games and pen-and-paper RPGs only).

I can share songs, with campaign/social solidarity/peace focus.

I can share gardening war-stories.

Contact me through theĀ About page.

Some platforms you can always pick up a gig or two:

Upwork – largest site for every digital worker from code to illustration and writing.

Guru – slightly smaller version of the above.

People-per-hour – very piecemeal gig work.

Fiver– see above, but more so.

Freelanced – brilliant community and portfolio sections, but job competition can be fierce.

Zirtual – specializing in virtual PA’s.

Lockdown Songs

The whole western world appears to be in lockdown as I write this, and this errant escriteur, too, is currently embargoed in a house with a wood burner and (thankfully) tonnes of fresh veg and laughter.

I hope that you, Gentle Readers, Kittlings, Comrades and Drekheads, can have similar joys.

The whole notion of ‘social distancing’ is one I am particularly uncomfortable with. Not that I want anyone to get ill – but that messaging is pretty poor. Messaging, language, are the cultural spells we use to weave a world…

So, let me spread this most alternative piece of messaging a comrade staying in the Nordics shared with me:

People across the world, in Holland, Denmark, Italy and beyond have taken to singing to each other from their balconies and barely-open windows, letting each other know that we are not distant; we are never alone.

 

And with some possible inspiration for other choristers out there:

And the best piece of advice I have also been given recently: Be not afraid.
