I'b all stupped up...

Yep. I definitely have a cold. I have no idea where I got it. I haven't been around anyone who even sniffled in weeks. I hope the kids don't end up with it in time for school to start.

On the up side, though, since I was under the weather, DH took the kids to the Winx Club Mall Tour in Livingston for a few hours and I stretched out on the love seat with a laptop and wrote another 5000 words on my WIP!!

I could probably write a couple thousand more tonight-I left off at a good part when the thundering herd returned with their haul of free giveaways from the Mall Tour, but my head is all floaty and my throat hurts, so I think I'm going to curl up and watch some TV instead. Five thousand is darn good for about four hours work [if you consider I had lunch and did a couple of loads of laundry in between 11:00 and 3:00.] I can't wait to get back to it, but I don't want to burn out either. I'm glad I left off during a steamy scene - that way when I get back to work, I know exactly what my characters are supposed to be doing. So far the story could easily be novella length, but I see the potential for a full novel and a number of target publishers.

I don't want to say too much more and jinx it, so I'm off to lounge on the couch and see if DH will make me that cup of cappuccino he promised me.

Hope you get to feeling better quickly. I've been fine. Everyone sniffling around me and so far I'm fine. Where is my vitamin C! A good placebo, sometimes.

I wrote a little. I haven't written as much as I wanted yet, but but have writtens some since my nephew went home.

Hi Annalee! The hot chocolate cappuccino helped a little, and I even wrote 2000 more words before I went to bed, now I'm up and stuffy again. Erg! I hate being sick.
