Writing Can Be Murder

Back in the saddle

Filed under: Uncategorized — love2wryte @ 7:54 pm

(for the record I would never willingly climb back into a saddle because I’m afraid of heights and terrified of oversized four-legged modes of transportation — I blame this on the trauma I suffered as a five-year-old when a camel spit in my face as I sat on his back)

But I digress. Yeah, I know, I digressed before I started.

For the first time in three weeks I had a “normal” day. I wrote quite a bit on the WIP (most of which I can’t read today as I try to type it up…that’s pretty standard for me) ran my usual Monday errands, and even went for a short run. (I can exercise for thirty minutes without coughing once, but the moment I start to eat or speak the coughing starts again — VERY annoying).

All of this has me thinking about how important routines are for productivity. Yesterday went just like a Monday should and I got more done on my story than I had in the entire week before (tho I must admit last week was emotionally trying/draining). So I’m back in the saddle.

Hi Ho Silver, Away!



  1. Congrats!! I rode a horse once, who tried to kill itself by chewing on an electrified fence. And another who started a fight with the horse in front of it by biting him on the a$$. Being spit on by a camel, though, sounds worse.

  2. Damn–I have no horse or camel anecdotes to add. However, I did have a run in with a goldfish once.

  3. Jen — imho camels are uglier and nastier than horses, BUT I’m not sure they’d be so stupid as to chomp on an electrified fence, so it’s a toss up as to which is worse
