Attitude

In general, most things don't get me down. The one thing guaranteed to knock me back is a stomach bug. I can deal with a cold. Or pains and aches. But the belly...

After three days in bed, I dragged myself out of bed, took a shower, had a bowl of oatmeal and settled in front of the computer. Determination and attitude have a lot to do with how we feel. Sometimes, it's best to crawl in bed, pull the blankets over your head and sleep it off.

But I'm slept out. Today, I'll play catch-up. I have a chat at Love Romance Cafe tonight so I'll put together some excerpts to share. I haven't written anything in at least three days so I might see if I've generated any story bits in my sleeping brain over the last three days. And of course, there are always the exciting things like dishes and house work.

How do you get back in the groove after you've been sick? I'm looking for some ideas...

In the meantime, as I said on Monday, in the interest of perking up February, I'll give away one print copy of each of the first two books in the Tuatha Treasures series. What do you have to do to get in on the random drawing?

Well. Comment on the BLOG--not Facebook, but the blog--and the comment has to relate to the blog topic that day. I'll draw two names on Friday night at midnight so be sure you leave me an e-mail addy! Comment on any day this week!

  1. I'm struggling to get back 'in the groove'. Been sick since before Christmas with cold/bronchitis and now it's crunch time. I may have to leave the house and hole up at my coffee shop for several hours, just like I did during NaNo! Planning to be at the chat tonight; I'll plan dinner early so I don't hear any complaints from the family.

    1. It seems once momentum is lost, it's difficult to get going again. Working on it...Look forward to talking to you this evening.

  2. I agree it's all attitude and determiniation. I just tell myself that I'm not going to put up with this weak arsed version of me so snap out of it.

    1. I did that up to the point where my head hit the keyboard. And then I decide a pillow would be more comfy...

    2. Well, I employ a special kind of stupid when it comes to me. I believe I'm invincible...
