Back At It


Last night I opened my WIP on my laptop for the first time in well over a week. What with the surgery and the recovery time, I hadn't exactly the energy to tackle it.

I really didn't have the energy last night, either, but I made myself do it largely because I was feeling depressed. I attribute that to being house-bound for almost a week, not being able to move very fast, sleepless nights, and just tired of being sick.

I was a bit rusty, but once I got going, I managed to get a few words down. I'm hopeful I can write more tonight, but we'll see. I'm finally back to work after being gone for a week and it might take all the energy I have just to get through the day. And then, who knows? My characters may start whispering in my ear this afternoon...

  2. Love when that happens! Especially when it's taken so much effort to get back to it again.

    Wishing you well, Melissa!

    Thank you for your kind words. Maybe I need to just trust God a bit more.

  5. I was sorry to read about your surgery, but hope you're feeling much better now! It must be a relief to at least have the problem fixed. And I have a sneaking suspicion as you get your energy back, those character voices will grow more and more insistent! Take care.

I love to hear from you!

One Day at a Time

I've always tried to live with this mentality: One day at a time. Unfortunately, when I implement it, I fail spectacularly. But for this...
