It's Catching Like Fire

"Like everybody else, when I don't know what else to do, I seem to go in for catching colds." ~George Jean Nathan

Everything’s fuzzy-my head, my hearing, my nose. Yes my friends, I tried to escape it with mega doses of vitamin C, but…it got me. I have a cold.

And not just any cold. It’s the kind that makes you write really boring stuff. The kind that won’t let you think of any kind of awesome action scene, because…let’s face it…I am just too tired to think of fast paced things right now when all I want to do is crawl under the covers and wish this cold away.

And the comments I’m leaving. Oh, why aren’t they more clever? More brilliant? Well, who can be brilliant with wads of tissue sticking out from their nostrils?

So my friends, if I sound too senseless or if I’m late checking out your posts this week, just remember…I am infested. And be careful, I hear it’s catching on.

So tell me, do you still write when you are sick? Do you sit next to your computer with a roll of t-p wads in your hand like me?

p.s. Sara B. Larson gave me a wonderful award this week. Thanks so much Sara (it’s already in my little award pictures)! You totally rock! Please check out her blog and pass on the bloggy love (not the awful colds). (Sorry Sara, I had that e and o mixed up--silly alphabet).

Have a great week everyone.

Forget the writing and get some sleep. You'll just want to throw it all out later. Don't waste your time!

Oh, I'm so sorry you're sick, Carolyn. Get rested up, and take it easy on yourself. I cannot write when I'm ill. I have a hard time focusing when I'm in perfect health. Best wishes on kicking that cold, and thanks for suggesting I check out Sara's blog. I'll head on over!

I am just getting over that crud. Maybe you caught it from me at my blog! *gasp!* Forgive me?! :-)

Feel better soon.

Awww. Hope you feel better soon. I'd be inclined to curl up with a good book and a box of tissue.

It's a good thing it's only temporary. Feel better soon. :)
