Day 3 - It's easy to write when....

I found that it's quite easy to write when you are stuck in a chair all day long.  Yeah, it doesn't sound that fun and it isn't.  My little brother body-slammed me at the bottom of a slide at the pool on Thursday.  It wasn't his fault.  I was trying to catch him so his head wouldn't go under water.  He's the only 4 year old I know that doesn't like getting his hair wet.  Anyway, 40 pounds slammed into me.  I was sore on Friday, but not too bad.  Saturday morning, I woke up and I almost threw up from the pain.  Last night I had a hard time sleeping, part of the time I was on the living room floor - then the couch - then the kitchen floor - and then my little brother's bed.  The whole time, my dog Lacey followed me and slept where I slept.  My back is terribly painful, but I am tying to sit still and wait for it to heal while taking lots of ibuprofen and hot showers. 

At least my writing went well today.  I'm about to introduce one of the first big plot points with Zach's character.  :)

Word count - Day 3:  7,602

  3. I'm with Catherine. Hope you get better soon. But every cloud has a silver lining, congrats on how well the writing is going!
