Clawing my way back

Well, I’m happy to report that I am mostly better. Apparently it was the flu, and not a cold. My sinuses have taken a beating and are still causing me a fair amount of pain – but it’s less than yesterday, and less than the day before, so I can only hope the trend continues and I feel better again tomorrow.

I’m 100% over being in pain from the moment I wake until the moment I fall asleep at night.

I’m also totally over being sick and not getting anything much done, so today I worked my way through the second half of yesterdays list and I’m almost to the end – the last tasks are to write this post, and get some words down on my latest short story.

I can do those things, because I really want to. Almost two weeks of doing very little when it comes to writing has left me really wanting to get stuck in. I’m determined this month to finish off the current story, and to edit another story that’s been sitting around for too long, as well as get whatever planning/pre-writing/whatever I need sorted for Delaney, because it’s not long now until I plunge myself into the depths of a new novel.

For the record, that thought scares the crap out of me, but I’m not going to let it stop me. A novel is just a bunch of sentences strung together, and I can easily write sentences. Therefore I can write this novel.

So, yes, that’s me at the moment! Still not in perfect health, but getting on with it anyway. Time to get back to business.

  1. A novel is just a bunch of sentences strung together, and I can easily write sentences.

    I love that! I’ve always both wanted to write a novel and been so daunted by it that I never begin. That sentence you just wrote (see, you can write sentences!) made me feel a lot better about it.

    1. Oh, Julie, pleased that something I wrote helped!! I think a novel can seem like a huge task when you look at it as a whole. If you break it down into smaller chunks its a lot more manageable.

  2. Onwards and upwards kiddo. Little things like illnesses cannot beat a writer to the ground 🙂 Hope you are feeling 100% soon… And I will be checking in on you too- never fear
