#WritingInLockdown Challenge 4.0

The fourth and final phase of a nationwide lockdown for India ended on 31st May, 2020. In this final leg, I went on with the #WritingInLockdown challenge and did #CollaborativeWriting along with some writers, artists and a few entrepreneurs.

This one is a mix of quotes, life-lessons and poems. Have a look at them all below:

1. Self-Discovery in Lockdown

Her story helps us look at the positive side of this lockdown. She has been engaging in long lost hobbies and activities she would never have got to do otherwise, like recreating her mom’s looks, painting, trying out new recipes and even reading. She says it’s the best time for her as she’s getting to discover or rather rediscover herself.

2. Keeping Family and Loved Ones Close
