EARLIER this week, Chelsie King sat down to dinner with her family, and talked about what everyone else is right now: Coronavirus.
Before long, the discussion settled on how how it was hard to find positives - in the news and life in general - as the pandemic continued.
"We really need something positive around to try and balance it out," her mother said.
So the 20-year-old, who has recently moved back to Swan Hill after spending a year in Horsham, made something positive: A song.
"After tea... I had this tune in my head, and I'm not one for songwriting, but I thought I would write it down and try and work on something. I sat in my room, and just wrote and wrote and within an hour I had a song," she said.
"I had the chorus straight away, and on facebook I had seen a lot of people comparing being in isolation to the Disney movie Tangled where Rapunzel is stuck in the tower.
"Then I looked online for all the other issues that were going on to write the second verse - I've got a section about children turning houses into schools."
Ms King said she hoped song, entitled "Today", was as useful to others that heard it as it has been to her.
"I find it very difficult personally to stay positive when things like this happen, and I thought if it helps me, it might help somebody else," she said.
"So I thought I would record it in case anyone was interested, and some people are, which is exciting."
Ms King, who appeared in Horsham Arts Council's October production of Mamma Mia!, said it was important people stayed social while distancing themselves physically from others.
"A lot of it is just to make sure you're not doing things on your own, to keep up socially even if you can't do it in person. Isolation shouldn't mean not speaking to speaking to people, because it gets lonely very quickly."
"Our family is trying not to worry until we get told directly something has happened. We are trying to self-isolate as much as possible, because we have my grandparents at my house as well. There are seven of us altogether - and my cat."
