Sorry for the short post

I've been a little under the weather the last 24 hours or so. Nothing serious, just a headache and a rather blah feeling.

Thanks to everyone for your comments on my Now what? post. While your opinions were varied, you all made some salient points and I do appreciate them.

I think I'm going to go back to writing the bigger, darker novel. For now. It just feels right, as Gina said.

Of course, I reserve the right to change my mind. And probably I will, at some point. But for now, I'm plowing ahead.

It beats sitting here sweating out the beta readers.

More tomorrow, provided I'm still upright.


  1. I'm not big on hypocrisy and I'll be damned if no sooner than I say something to you, that I have to apply it in my own life. And I've been around long enough to know that shit happens but it's still a kick in the ass. I have to do what I know I need to.

    I had my blah day yesterday. I have about one a week and it sucks. I keep thinking that it shouldn't be that way anymore, but then I come here and I see you go through the same thing pretty regularly so I know I'm okay.

    Today was good though. I cranked out an entire chapter, probably the longest one in the book.

    Thank you for being here and being honest. I look forward to your posts.

    Still reading, still loving it. I know I'm slow on this, hang in there.

  2. Here I am, having not written anything of substance for going on 8 days now (I reserve the right to whine and blame the medicine!) and you go and make me feel bad about not bootstrapping my thousand or so words a day!

    Drat you and your reverse motivations!

    (Translation: feel better, soon ;-) )

  3. Sorry to see you're not feeling well. I hope you feel better.

    With regard to your previous post, my constant motto is: butt in chair, pound the keyboard. Write what your gut/instinct tells you to write.


  4. Hope you feel better Terry!

    Headaches are bad enough, but Blah is such an energy killer.

  5. Good luck on the darker novel. Sounds like a good choice to me. Hope you feel better.
