This blog follows how a romance novel set in the Borders of medieval Scotland is researched, written and hopefully *hopefully* published.

Dreams, Disappointments and Disease

Unfortunately some people don't get second chances. The girl I mentioned in Saturday's blog didn't make it. I can't imagine how her parents feel, losing someone so young.

Anyhow, I'm back home and trying to figure out how soon I can get my son and myself back down to see my mom again. Making phonecalls and rearranging appointments.

I wrote a little bit last night. It was completely compulsive. I felt better after getting some words out, but it didn't help me sleep (which it usually does). I was plagued by strange dreams. People I haven't seen in years suddenly showed up at a location that was similar to one we all attended--similar but so different, too. Some people I know are much older were there, too, only young and vital again, on beautiful horses inside a large jousting arena. I was nervous at seeing them all again, but comforted because most of them remembered me and were welcoming. Even I was younger (and thinner ;-) again, shy and insecure, but thrilling at the magic that seemed to fill the air.

Now I'm going to prep my son for naptime and go lie down myself. My illness seems to be morphing and providing chills and fever but I think if I sleep most of my day away (not easy with the nearly 3 year old jumping on me) I'll be able to rally by midweek. I'll see how I feel tomorrow--I'm thinking my mood is also keeping me down at this point, too, so I'll need to kick my own butt into action if I'm not getting more together by tomorrow.

Hope the rest of you are doing well!
