Surgery

Well, that does it. There's no way we'll make the deadline now. I had surgery this week which put me on the couch for the past four days, unable to do much more than watch old movies and feel sorry for myself. The surgery was minor and is nothing to worry about, but the recovery is taking longer than I anticipated.

Do I hear laughing?

Okay, okay... I know I'm an unrealistic over-achiever. Yes I had surgery on Tuesday. Yes, that was only four days ago. And yes, I suppose it will take more than four days to heal. But lying on the couch wishing I could take stronger pain pills (I'm allergic to opiates so can't have anything good) is putting a dent in my Wonder Woman image.

My muse just laughs harder.

Hope you're feeling better soon. Rest and try to relax - that's when my best ideas come to me. (And then I can't relax because I start trying to chase them down and trap them on paper ☺)

thanks, Mu-me. That's what happened to me this morning. I woke up at 4:00 AM and had to write a poem

Rest and relaxation is probably the best. The book will still be there later... looming. :)
Seriously, fix yourself before fixing the project.
