Disco Inferno

Just a bit of complaining about the little things in life that get in the way of writing.

postcard-couple-kissing-with-surgical-masks-b40c4-b-w (1)We’re emerging from two weeks of mind numbing illnesses at our house. My poor Rick, who is a strong and manly-man, came down with the full-blown influenza, the Swine Special, a freight train of a virus that roars through your system with the fury of a hurricane . (Of course we got shots!) For some reason the flu is raging out here. So, if you’re in Colorado, cover your mouth when you cough and wash your hands – a lot.

And then, a few days ago, my lower back exploded. A herniated disc. God, who gets those? Me apparently.  Hurts like hell, but I’m on my feet – most of the time.

Hence the title of this blog. Sorry, I just couldn’t resist.disco-inferno-2

Needless to say, my WIP is limping along, no pun intended. However, for the first time in days I am able to sit down at the computer, outline a scene, and claw my way back into wordland.

So, what’s the writing holdup at your house these days?

  1. Love the picture with the surgical masks!
    Back pain is the worst. There’s just no getting away from it
    I just got through a bout of headaches–I mean every day? Really? Finally I had to give in and crawl into bed and not come out until they were gone. Sometimes I think you don’t really know how sick you are until you get better, and realize what you were pushing through.

    I hope you and Rick are feeling better soon!

  2. Touch wood: I haven’t had the flu or a cold for well over a year. I feel for anyone who’s down for the count because I remember. Hope all are well soon. Back pain must be the worst. Better soon?

  3. Where can I buy some of those sexy love masks…crikey you have all the best stuff over there. Writinng hold ups? Only myself….
