I don't know if anyone else has had such a long hiatus from writing regularly as I have, but it is so much harder to be creative once you are out of the habit. I have enough time to make this a part of the daily ritual, but sometimes the energy is just lacking. I am trying to read more for inspiration, and watch less television (which is, admittedly, my downfall).
I did write a small piece today, although I am not crazy about it. Now to let it rest for a day or two and go back to revise.
The house is quiet today. Everyone is out doing their thing and I was feeling the usual trifecta of pain, nausea and fatigue this morning so I took a pass on being out and about. Ninety degree weather doesn't help much, and a day in the sun is really just asking for a flare up. My leg is already stiffening up because we are tapering off prednisone again. It's like flipping a damn switch. I've already lost significant range of motion. It's a bummer.
Reading: City of Dark Magic and The Sisters Brothers
Yes, I often read more than one book at the same time.
Watching: I just finished Slasher on Netflix.
Otherwise, life remains as ordinary as ever.
