IWSG: Under the Weather


It's the first Wednesday of the month, and time for members of the Insecure Writer's Support Group to share their writerly insecurities. The group was started by Alex J. Cavanaugh, and those interested in joining in can visit www.insecurewriterssupportgroup.com for more information.

I am writing today's post from the confines of my bed, and as I write, the rainclouds hang heavy in the sky. This serves as a perfect metaphor for how I am feeling right now. I'd been nursing a cold for about a week, which turned into a full-blown fever over the weekend. The good news is I am already on the mend, but I still have to endure the side effects of the drugs I have been taking.

Needless to say, I haven't gotten any writing done recently. But don't worry, I won't be whining about that today, as tempted as I am. The funniest thing here is I am feeling too lightheaded at the moment to feel bad or beat myself up about it, all thanks to the aforementioned side effects. So I guess that every cloud does have its silver lining.

  1. Hope you feel better really soon. And if you're too high to care, that is a good thing.

  5. I hope you feel better soon - maybe write down a description of your symptoms to use for a character later. :)

  6. I hope you feel better soon. When I'm sick, I never get writing done either. I just want someone to take care of me.

  8. By the time you read this, I hope your cold is gone, the cold medicine side affects are gone and that you are your muse are reunited:)

    1. Thanks, Sandra. The cold itself is gone, for the most part. I am still on the meds for now, today being my last dose. And my muse is nowhere to be found at the moment, although I am confident she would eventually find her way back home; I even left the doors and windows open for her, just in case. ;)
