Some people eat when they’re trying to forget about something. Others exercise.
Then there’s always the ‘drugs, sex, and rock n roll’ method (which is not doctor recommended). And of course, we can’t forget day time television, books, video games, and the internet- which holds its own myriad of distraction.
I was surprised to discover, however, in the last few days that in my case, when the going gets rough, the rough get writing. ( Ok, I know its supposed to be ‘tough’ but ‘rough and writing’ just sound so much better together, don’t they?)
..and writing, and writing, and writing and writing. Needless to say, I started my wip almost three weeks ago and its already 24k. Like the gold. Almost 10k of which has been written in the last few days.
I’m thinking its stress related. I haven’t been blogging much. I just don’t have the energy and my eyes are already starting to protrude from my head from all the time spent staring at the black and white screen. (This is not a good look for me. As you can see from my photo, my teeth are just a little too big for my head. And I swear to God, they get bigger every year. Or maybe my head is shrinking. Is there such a thing as shrinking head syndrome?)
Anyway, I want to thank everyone so much for their kind words and prayers for my daughter Lily. She is doing HEAPS better. Today she had her last dose of steroids and we found out she won’t be able to see the allergy specialist and run tests until at least ten days off the treatment. But her color is a lot better and the virus seems to have run its course, so YAY!!
Tomorrow is the ‘Guest That Character Blogfest’ sponsored by Jen from Unedited! Thanks Jen for reminding me since I’ve got cronic blogfest-find-and-forgetitisisisis.is.
Hope ya’ll have a great humpday!
