You’re on a Nice Run and Then Life Happens

So, I was cruising along this week, more than on target to hit my goal of 7,000 words for the week despite the fact that I had three children with the stomach flu on Tuesday.  I won’t go into details because even being a horror writer, I find it too gruesome to put into words.  It wasn’t pretty.  Let’s just leave it at that.  But, I was +500 words by the end of Tuesday and finished my blog post by 7:00 a.m. on Wednesday.  I figured this week was going to be cake.  Right?


When will I ever learn?

About 10:00 a.m. I got the worst case of stomach flu that I have ever had in my life.  I wasn’t actually dying (obviously because here I am boring you to death yet again), but there were times I wished I would die because then the torture would be over.  I lived in the bathroom and cried a lot because I was too sick to sleep. That lasted until approximately ten o’clock this morning.

And there went my positive word count.  Now I’m in the whole by -250, if I get my thousand done today, that is.

So, I guess the moral of this story is don’t count you’re cake until you eat it.  But wait until after the stomach flu.  Ew.
