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

Join me on the writing journey and get inspired to try writing a little romance into your own life!

Sick and Tired, but Working...

I'm sick today, and my son's definitely got it, too. He's an absolute mess. Grumpy, stuffy-nose that also runs (just to keep one guessing), coughing and sneezing, just wants to curl up and sleep, obsessed by cartoons and angry at the world...

Oh, wait. That's ME!

So basically I'm moping around the kitchen, typing, cleaning, puttering. And in case you were wondering, no, I don't feel inspired in the least to write a new section of my novel when I feel like this. I'm not truly a "method writer," and I don't think it'd help to make Jennet (my heroine) suffer a sickness or be mopey, but I think a sense of my current attitude could ooze into any writing I do today. So, better not spread the mood the contagion puts me in... ;-)

Anyhow, I've got long hours working tonight and if the weather clears for tomorrow evening we'll be on our way to visit my family. If the weather doesn't clear I think I will become even more bitter about current circumstances.

I do feel like I got a few things accomplished--my blog's looking more homey (well, at least in my opinion), although I still have some severe funkiness happening along the page's bottom. It's ok, you can look ;-) Hopefully I'll continue making things more useful and viable around here... And writing, of course.

Hope all of you are well... And writing (of course)!

Thank you! I got about 2 hours of sleep last night--I'm coughing like I was built to spread some plague--but I napped this afternoon and will also get myself to sleep tonight relatively soon. If nothing else, it was important to see family and friends this weekend. You never know how often you'll get that opportunity, so I'm trying to make the most of each.
