Waiting for the New Year to Feel New

I'm still struggling to get back into my pre-holiday routine.  I'm still not well, but getting better.  I'm still tired, still not motivated to get back to THE BOOK.  January 2014 is going to be a wash.

I need a kick in the pants to get back into gear.  I wrote a piece today for MMW, the blog I contribute to twice a month.  I shared some discouragement, but realized, in the end, I'm doing the best I can in this crazy writing life.

You can read it here: MMW POST

I'm hoping to get back to my perky, brilliant self soon.  This sniffly, hacking, sore-joint self is wearing out its welcome.  Boo.


I hope your January has been virus free and that you're making headway on your 2014 resolutions!  Tell me about them, so I can live energetically through you.

With all the subzero temps and snow we've had here most of my time is just spent snuggling in and keeping warm. I've put away Christmas but the whole house needs a good cleaning now. It will be done eventually. Thankfully no viruses or sickness here, just a bit blah attributed to the weather.

Glad you are finally starting to feel better. When the time is right, you will be able to get back into your writing and get that book finished. I loved your MMW post. Thank you so much. Have a good weekend.

Ok good you are starting to feel better, me I am starting to feel like all I want to do is sleep, not that you needed to know that.

Next this year just feel like the same ole same ole with a different number.

It's a shame to start the new year sick, when it's a time of new beginnings and goals and instead you don't feel like doing anything! Hope you are soon up and running!

I'm such a germaphobe that I get nervous just reading about people being sick :(

At least you have a cute Kleenex holder to cheer you up :)

sorry you have been sick! i too was hit in the new year with a sinus thing or something--over it pretty much now----not really any resolutions but wanting to be more active and enjoy things more :)

Belated Happy New Year to you! I hope the virus will instantly flee as soon as the medication works. I'm sorry to hear that you are not as motivated to finish your book. But perhaps you can think of the many people who will be inspired to read again another one from you? Take care and God bless! :)
