It's been a hard week or two. First, my husband got pretty sick - with bronchitis. Listening to him cough, and struggle for breath, just tore my heart out every time. (He IS on the mend, by the way, but still has inflamed bronchial tubes. According to the doc, he should get better with time)
Then, my motherboard stopped working Wednesday - the day before I was planning to enter the first 7k of my Biblical fiction WIP, Handmaiden to a Princess in The Emily. I KNOW God had a different reason for me to work as hard as I did to get that part of my manuscript polished and pretty, but it was still a bit of a letdown.
And now, I'm waiting (not so patiently, if you're wondering) for my new puter, which should arrive NO LATER THAN October 21. I'm using the hubby's laptop here and there, but that's about it. And I try not to take advantage of his generosity.
Internet Cafe no later than the 20th of this month. But my brain has no desire to cooperate.
MAYBE all this is God telling me to take a break (as much as I can, anyway) until I have my own computer. Perhaps I should focus my time on other things, like cleaning my house (did I just hear an "Amen" from the hubby's chair?), reading, spending time with my family, or who knows what else.
Or maybe I should embrace my blahs. Or work through them anyway. (We all know we can't wait for inspiration to do what we need to do - we do it and hope it comes)
Or, like every good 21st century writer, I could do what I just did - WRITE a blog about why I can't WRITE.
Makes perfect sense to me!
