That thing where you have a nice little slot of time in between projects and you just know you can fit something else in, but then end up getting sick and are unable to do anything? Yup. That was most of this week. I’m still feeling slightly off colour, still not 100% sure whether I’m sick, or just run down. I just know that I’m not really able to focus properly, or function normally and have spent quite a lot more time than usually lying down. Bed is good. Headaches, nausea, stomach ache are not.
However, I did drag myself out to the library today and got some words down. It’s only 700 or so, but in a short story, that’s quite a lot. I have told myself that even if it turns out to be rubbish, it’s worth writing just as practice, experimentation, for fun. Breaking out of editing mode and just first drafting for a little bit will help shake my brain up.
Anyway, fingers crossed I’ll be feeling mostly good tomorrow. I’ve got more editing jobs landing in my inbox very soon, but until then, I’m going to keep working on this story.
Hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend!
