Illness destroys creative juices.

Hi there,

for the past week I’ve been knocked off my feet with a dose of the manflu. I haven’t been able to eat properly, sleep properly,  most nights I would sleep on the sofa so that I didn’t disturb my partner with my endless coughing and sneezing. This is the first time in seven days I’ve actually been at my laptop to actually write anything.To say I felt like s**t would be a huge understatement.

Today though, after spending a full night of restful sleep in bed I woke to feel, better. I’m still recovering, the cough is still there as is all the mucus that accompanies such an event, but I actually feel better. I found myself thinking of plot details on my new story, which had completely stymied me whilst I was ill, unfolding in my mind as I lay in bed. This morning I got up to write and not because I couldn’t sleep which has to be an improvement, don’t you think?

I’m so glad I’m on the mend, it’s hell when you’re ill and I have the utmost respect for those whose battle illness or disability on a daily basis, their strength of character is nothing if not epic. I’ve only had to battle a dose of the manflu, I have no idea how I’d manage with anything more serious.

Anyway, that’s all for now, just wanted to say Hi,

see you soon,

Having worked in the ceramic printing industry since leaving school in the early 70's I've had a passion for the written word. I started writing in the 80's and since discovering the self publishing world have finally seen the first part of my ambition come to fruition, my name in print. Now with the help of wordpress and other promotion tools I hope to see the second part of my ambition come true, to earn a living from writing.
