When You're Less Than Your Best

I can already tell this is going to be a long day.

I'm congested from a cold, so I didn't sleep well last night--or should I say, I slept even less than normal. But of course that's not enough to justify staying home, and Alex will demand I carry him around and attend to his every need as usual. I plan to write during my lunch hour, though I wonder how productive I'll be.

Writing does require discipline; part of that is sticking to a regular writing schedule. On days when you're sick or tired, does the muse still keep his/her appointment with you? Do you find that you write less than normal, or that you have to toss it all out later? Are we pushing ourselves too much in this fast-paced, Type A society?

That's enough questions for now; it's back to bed for me for a little while longer.

I find that if I have a schedule, I will stick to it. Sometimes writing is the only moments of peace I have during the day.

Sorry you're sick. Hope you feel better today.
