I've been sick for four days. I've got the sore throat, allergy, bronchitis, achy-breaky all over kind of flu. Blah! I find this to be an incredible waste of time. But after going to the doctor and finding out that I didn't have strep throat and I wasn't getting an antibiotic, that I was just going to have to rest and get better, I finally accepted my fate. Sometimes no matter what we do we're going to get sick. Of course I completely blame this illness on my husband who contributed to my demise.
So I'm trying to quit feeling sorry for myself. But you know how it is when others are counting on you at work and you just can't show up. I get a severe case of the guilts even though it's out of my control. Even staying home and trying to write doesn't come easy. In fact, speaking of guilt I have not written on my current novel that has a June 1st deadline in three days.Guilt. Guilt. Guilt. Okay. I'm letting go of the guilt. I am. Right now. At least I'm going to try. So sitting here all sicky I thought I'd let you know about The Well Writer, just in case you don't know.
Last summer Bonnie Calhoun, Christian Fiction Online Magazine was looking for new ideas for columns for this awesome publication. I suggested a Well Writer Column. :) And now I have a column. Did I tell you she has an incredible sense of humor. I wanted to utilize other folks for this column to spread as much knowledge as possible for those of us who write. You can look through the archives to read through all the columns. This month Serena B. Miller has written a column that will cause you to stop and reconsider the simplicity that a lot of us probably miss out on while caught up with all the things we think must be done. Please read Amish Wellness Lessons when you get a chance.
