In Sickness and In Health

So sorry for not posting yesterday. I had a nasty bug and barely made my word count.

It bothers me a bit when I’m sick and people say, “I hope you get better,” as though not getting better is a real option. It seems a morbid reassurance. How much better to wish someone “I hope you get better SOON”!

More importantly, even when I’m puking up my guts, I’ve still got to write. I take writing as seriously — or maybe more seriously — as any other profession. And this book is an impatient one, punishing me if I take time off.
