When I’m unwell, bad rhymes and tired phrases are sometimes all my brain can muster.
Clearly, I’m sick, to write a headline like that.
This is why I begged an extra day on a story I owed an editor today. I just couldn’t do good work.
But it’s exactly one week today since I began the National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo) challenge. I knew it wouldn’t be easy finding something to write about every day. Coming up with ideas actually hasn’t been so tough – some days I’ve even posted twice, I’ve been so inspired.
But I didn’t count on getting sick. I now realize that I also didn’t plan very well for unexpected work projects, volunteering activities or other commitments. Or things like seeing friends, listening to music, reading, watching movies and, you know, having fun.
Of course, all those things are fuel for the blog, which is good. I’m almost always in the mood to write something.
But you really don’t want to read about my illness today. Honest, you don’t.
So I’ll just leave it at this: I managed to write my post today and now I’m going back to bed.
