I took last month off from blogging to make some progress on my writing. The first week went well, allowing me to catch up on a lot of progress after my massive timeline rewrite. I was hopeful that I might make a serious dent. And then April 7th hit, and my daughter got sick. She had a high fever that wouldn’t go away. It was a viral cold, the type you can only treat the symptoms of, not the source. On the 20th, we admitted her to the hospital with pneumonia. By day three in the hospital, she was showing improvement. And I came down with a fever.
I’m still terribly ill, unable to think straight, coughing my lungs out and shivering half the time, so it might be a bit before I’m able to visit everyone’s blogs. But I will get there. Not sure about my writing though. I haven’t been able to write a thing with my mind inhibited with first worry and now illness. At least I can be thankful that my daughter is back to her usual exuberance. But being incapable of writing just because of the groggy head does make me a tad insecure.
IWSG Question of the Month – It’s spring! Does this season inspire you to write more than others, or not?
I’ve never found myself inspired by the seasons. The stories all live in my head, and in my head, it’s a constant climate.
How do you handle writing while sick? Any tips for beating a terrible cough and fever?
