Coffee Talk: Illness, Playing Catch-up, and the Latest Word

Good morning, and welcome to another edition of Coffee Talk! Have you got your coffee? Me too, so let's get started.

First up, SICKNESS. Oh my god you guys, I have been sick for two and a half weeks now, and I fear that I'm never going to get over it. I got sick the Sunday before vacation week, was sick all through vacation, went back to work sick, and, yep, you guessed it, I'm still freaking sick! I can't even remember the last time I've felt so poor for so long, but it's really hampering my life. 

I was pretty unproductive the week before vacation, I powered through vacation but at a slower pace, and I've been pretty unproductive since I've gotten back. This has sucked, in more ways than one, and I want to feel better. I went to the doctor when I first got sick, but I'm going back today. Hopefully, they can do something to help.


The flip side of being sick & exhausted all the time is that it's really thrown my life into limbo. I haven't been able to do the things I want and need to do. I have obligations and The Write Life that need tending, but I've had zero energy to do them.

I am so close to finishing The Box that it's not even funny, but I haven't felt well enough to complete it yet! I've been reminding myself that I shouldn't get down on myself for being sick, and that it won't be long before it's back to business as usual.


Never fear though, I will finish that book, and I've already got big plans for The Write Life here in the near future. I've got a decent plot line thought out for my next book, which -- while still a thriller -- will be a bit different from my other stuff. I also have a trilogy planned for farther down the road. This means that I'm still plenty rife with ideas, and that I'm not going anywhere soon, even if my clinging-on sickness makes me feel like I'm not getting anywhere with anything.

I've started editing my vacation photos, so I'm thinking that Saturday is the day for the big post!

Until then, have a good day, and I'll see you on Friday.
