Trying to Write

Oh man. I have been trying to write over the last month, and somewhat succeeding.

Having gotten an infection that was pretty damn serious and then dealing with the fallout of that…. well, I’m still not back to 100% (even for a spoonie) and my body is really really not happy with me (antibiotics are hell on the body).

Of course, I hate being the centre of attention. I know, I write and I’m an introvert. Usually, it’s a job we do all on our own so that’s normally okay. But I really just don’t get people who want to be at the centre of medical attention. Munchausen Syndrome boggles the mind.

But, I digress. I was talking about writing and my mind wandered off. Thankfully I have it on a leash today.

There is something wrong with my back. I can’t stand, I can’t sit for long periods of time. That means I end up horizontal a lot, and because I have weakness in my arms that comes and goes, that means I can’t sit with a laptop even if I’m reclining.

Thankfully I have found a solution – and it’s not dictation software (because let me tell you, with a nuclear powered toddler who wants to get into everything…..) I have found that a bluetooth keyboard with my iPad Pro and some wonderful software, I have been able to write again.

Hopefully in the next few months I’ll be able to get back into writing short fiction so I can resurrect Fiction Fridays. I really do enjoy them, but I also have the problem of placing the story in the known timeline. Seriously, y’all know less than me in this (I am The Great Metal Hand In The Sky for my universe) and it drives me nuts that I can’t share everything.

Ah well. Back to the grind…. mmm… grind… coffee…
