As you may or may not have seen, I’ve been running a blog tour for my new novella release, This World Bites. This in itself is enough to make me insecure. But that’s not my primary insecurity. I trust those who signed up for the tour, and it’s been fabulous so far.
But I can’t help think of all the stuff I’m not getting done. It’s overwhelming. Why haven’t I figured out everything in book 2 of the ninier series yet? Why don’t I have more written on Lust, a novella I have to finish by the fall for The Seven? Why, when I sit down at my computer, do I start to panic?
I’m not blocked, but gosh darn it, I’m not very productive either.
I think the problem stems from the illnesses that has plagued my family since the turn of the new year. We’ve gone a month with off-and-on fevers, hacking coughs, inhalers, runny noses, and sore throats. One person gets better as another person gets sick. Is it just too much to ask that we all be healthy at the same time?
This isn’t like the blog tour. I can’t rely on other people to get sleep and feel better for me. Everyone at the Town’s End is sick and cranky.
On a plus note, my son has laryngitis, so we’ve had respite from his usual ear-piercing scream. Yay?
Please wish me luck at weathering this sick time and getting back to being productive. And then, head on over to Holly Sinclair’s blog and check out my interview!
