A really quick update…
I thought I had the flu, but it turns out I don’t. I have tonsillitis instead. Jesu, joy of man’s desiring!
At least it explains why my throat hurts like hell. Fortunately, the doc gave me a shot in the office (well, that’s not really where he stuck me, but you get the picture), and a prescription for oral antibiotics.
Except for the general fever/chills and achiness of my body fighting an infection (oh yeah, and did I mention that my throat hurts like hell?), I feel pretty good. I don’t have energy to do shit, but at least I’m not congested and snuffly too. Isn’t that grand? But I digress…
So that’s the current reason I haven’t written much lately. The other reasons are work and motivation. When I’m in the mood to write, I don’t have time. And when I have time, I’m not in the mood.
I finished Ch16 a while ago and sent it to my alpha reader. He came back with lots of comments, which means I need to add several scenes. I have them worked out in my head, I think, but see the previous paragraph about why I haven’t committed them to electrons.
Anyway, the antibiotic shot and the pills should clear up my lovely infection, and I’ll get my strength back as soon as I feel like eating again. (Although I gotta say, there’s something gloriously sinful about making a meal out of a chocolate and cherry milkshake. You know? And if it weren’t for the damned peanut butter salmonella thing, I’d be having a peanut butter and banana milkshake right now. But again, I digress…)
So that’s the quick update. I’ll feel like writing again soon. Actually, I’ll feel like swallowing again soon. The rest with happen when it happens.
And remember, folks, I serve no whine before its time.
