Cough, cough, hack, hack

Ah friends. I am sick.

And yet, the joy of my job is that I work from home. And while I ADORE working from home 99.7% of the time, that 0.3% that I'm sick, I hate it.

Because sadly, there are no sick days for a writer. Or a mom, but that's a WHOLE other blog that would likely involve a pretty significant chunk dedicated to an ode about sleeping in on Saturdays. ;) (P.S. It's worth the sleep deprivation.)

I've got a book releasing tomorrow (YAY!), a bunch of interviews this week and a lot of things scheduled that just keep piling up with or without my doctor's note. So, I'm sucking it up (while shoving a cough drop in my mouth so I can suck it up without flagging a coughing fit), getting myself up and dressed and trying not to complain while I give my little disclaimers to the poor interviewers on the phone who are probably convinced they are going to contract my cough and subsequent laryngitis through the phone.

I am letting myself have a brief break from the novella I'm working on though. I'm not Wonder Woman or anything.

So. That's what I've got going on. And I want to hear from YOU now. What are you up to? What are you needing or wanting to know about the writing process - whether it's how to write a first chapter or how to write back a potential agent?

Have a lovely night! Here's to hoping for a congestion-free day for us all tomorrow. :)
