Yes, I've been absent. Again.

Yes, I have a dear friend waiting patiently for me to read her book (I am. It's good. I WILL finish it soon. Promise.)

But. I have been sick. Like a damned dog. And the wife, too. She had bronchitis and did a five-day run of antibiotics -- the kick-butt kind. Luckily, the roller derby league is on a mini-hiatus for the holidays, so she's not missing much.

Me? I don't do doctors, unless I'm dying. So I'm waiting it out. And waiting.

Oddly enough, I have been working on the new book. I knocked out a couple thousand words this past week -- not much, sure, but not bad considering. I know it's a rough draft and I know that I seem to have difficulty painting characters in depth (according to response to TDYDK), so I'm focusing on that. I will likely have to go back and fill in some depth once the actual rough draft is finished.

Sigh. I'm done for tonight. I hope to blog more very soon. Surely this can't last forever. Right?


  1. *offers virtual chicken soup*

    I hope you and your wife feel better, Terry.

  2. Thanks Josin! She's getting there. I'm a day or so behind.

  3. Sucks to be sick. I can't even imagin writing 2 words never mind a couple thousand. Go you.

    Hope you feel better.

  4. Aw, poor Terry. :o(

    I know what you mean though about going to the doctors. I have to be pretty sure I'm going to die if I don't, before I'll make an appointment to go. What is the sense of having an immune system if I don't let it put in it's share of work?

    Hope you feel better soon, and I'm proud of you for still writing even if you might possibly be hacking up a lung.

  5. Wish I could write when I felt bad!

  6. Oh, I certainly hope you feel better soon!

  7. I was in the same shape last weekend, so I feel your pain. It was horrible. But with the wife out of it too, you guys are in real trouble. I at least had a healthy hubby who was available to bring me crackers and seven up. He just wouldn't touch me or breath while in the room. Can't say as I blame him;) Hope you and the missus get to feeling better soon.

  8. Hey Terry. Sorry to hear you and your wife are feeling under the weather. Get better soon and just keep writing.

  9. Have to give you a lot of credit on being able to write while not feeling good.

    Great blog.
