It’s not like I didn’t know it was going to happen so I don’t know why I’m surprised. You can’t keep going forever burning the candle at both ends. Today I woke up with a miserable headache, sore throat and a pain in the neck.
I’ve been sitting in front of the laptop most of the day staring at the screen and messing up just about everything I’ve done. I’ve relegated almost 2000 words of Yantsu to the scrap file and a couple of plot ideas have been sent to the asylum file (my folder for crazy ideas) to mellow a bit.
On the plus side, I’ve managed to eat well today and get plenty of water down my neck. At least the nutrition side of things is looking up if not the training. I decided to give it a miss tonight and get some sleep instead.
At least I got a good run in yesterday and a pretty good training session last night. Maybe the pain in the neck is a result of too many push ups and punches.
So, early night tonight to give the rest-starved brain a break and then back to the writing in earnest tomorrow. Who knows, perhaps the crazy ideas will seem a little less crazy after some sleep. Maybe even the scrap will get a reprieve.
