C Mead final logoYip, winter is here, and I have the dreaded lurgy.  I hate being sick, and I have to be the worlds most awkward and worst patient.  I don’t like sitting still – even when I am writing I fidget – and I just want to do the normal chores I have every day to do, but if I do, I end up having a coughing fit, getting light headed and wanting to pass out.  Not a good look if you are home alone!

I had hoped that I would get the opportunity yesterday (being Saturday as I forward write my blog posts), to write some on my taniwha story – but no.  I got up, had a shower, felt great, made breakfast, felt OK, made some chicken soup, hang some washing up, did my hubby’s PAYE and then decided that I could handle much more.  I grabbed my Kindle and commenced reading while my computer downloaded a couple of movies.

I ended up spending the day watching Stupid Crazy Love, The Book of Eli and American Hustle.  Lets just say that Stupid Crazy Love was good, Book of Eli had a curve ball that you didn’t see until the very end and American Hustle was long, but didn’t have a very good hustle at the end.  (Give me the UK version any day where the ending is so complex you laugh because it was so obvious!)

So here I am, on Sunday feeling crappy still, but I need to start doing some writing.  So, what better place to start, than a blog post!

This week is a fairly hectic one for me, as most weeks are, and with being sick, that doesn’t help.  Being sick also has the down side of affecting my moods, and I get desperately cuddly and affectionate, but not for long periods of time (remember fidgety above?).

I need to get my A into gear and start scheduling time to write, read my course material for Mauri Ora and Proofreading and Copyediting course, otherwise nothing is going to get finished.  Right now, I do feel like I am in over my head, but I know I am not.  I just need to put my Kindle Fire down (sob – do I have to?) and do course reading at night.

So how is everyone else’s schedules going?  According to plan?  Or is there a spanner in your works too?

Excuse me while I cough and splutter…

    Is there ever *not* a spanner in the works?! It’s only Monday, so ask me again at the end of the week lol.

    The spanner this week is needing to weigh up the options for publishing, and needing to make big changes in my WIP.

    I hope you are feeling better this morning! And, well done for knowing that even though things *feel* overwhelming, it doesn’t mean they *are*. I’m like you and get desperately cuddly when I’m sick lol.

    Take care xx

    Hope you start feeling better soon!

    I seem to have got my mojo back, so my week is starting off far better than I imagined it would – lets hope it continues. Everything is, strangely, right on track… in fact *knocks on wood* I think I’m ahead of schedule..
