The Sickness, it kills

So I first started to cough and sneeze and feel like crap on New Year’s Eve. I decided, for that reason and because it was New Year’s Eve, that I wasn’t going to do any writing.  Fair enough.

I woke up New Year’s Day. I still felt like crap. I decided, for the sake of my already-bad writing, that I was not going to write anymore that day, for fear that it would be even worse than usual.

Jan 2nd came around. I was actually feeling a bit better. But I had a dentist appointment at 7 in the morning that left the front of my mouth plus half my nose numb. You try writing like that.  So that was my excuse to not write at all during the morning. I napped away most of the afternoon. In the evening, I actually did write 4,000 words, but that was it.

So here we are on the 3rd of January, and I am 22,000 words behind.  (And I’m still not properly well, and in the past 24 hours, I’ve been asleep for 17 of them).

Damn, I hate being sick.

  1. “I actually did write 4,000 words, but that was it.”

    I am in awe of you! You are who I want to be when I grow up! I would be happy with 4,000 words a week at this point!

    Maybe I just need to stop whining about how “I’ve tried everything these past eleven months but I’m still blocked!!!!!” and start revisiting old techniques, combining them, aggressively pursuing new ways to get the words. Because it’s all in my head.

  2. That’s really shdwre! Good to see the logic set out so well.
