Hi Ho And a Bottle of Nyquil

Okay...cold weather...not such a big deal anymore. Being sick...bites. I thought I got my annual winter cold early in the fall, but I've got another one, and it's kicking my butt.  Honestly, I have squeaked in a little writing about every other day this week, but I did not write down my daily totals. (I'm actually shocked just now to look back at my log and see that I managed to do over 4K for the week! I guess my infrequent writing sessions have been productive, despite my death rattle as I was typing.) Waking up at 4:30 a.m. on Saturday morning, lying there for a half hour, then finally getting up and writing for a while is about the only positive think I can say about sick person's insomnia. My wish for the upcoming week, you ask? Well...I'd love to see the sun come out, the snow melt (ain't gonna happen--I think one day has a high predicted in the teens), me cast off this cold, break into song (with no one around to hear), and write a few thousand words...typing so fast that smoke flies from keyboard.


  1. Good for you for sticking with it despite being under the weather. That's real dedication to your craft!

  2. Oh, I want some sunshine, too! My husband set me up a nice little desk next to a window, and there's a bird feeder right outside. Now, if only we had sunshine while it's still daylight.

    Sorry you're feeling so bad, Michelle. I hope you feel better quickly!
