Writing and the flu

I’ve missed the past two workdays because of the flu. Worse, it has been bad enough that I’ve mostly laid in bed drooping and coughing and haven’t been able to write anything. I’m feeling a bit better, though, so it’s time to get back to business.

I have some ideas that I’d like to turn into short stories. I think I can have them ready by the end of the weekend.

Then, it’s back to work on Monday, where I’ll get written up because I don’t have a doctor’s note (I don’t have insurance).  Oh, the joys of being a wage laborer in America.

Anyway, I’d like to share this article from Brevity’s blog. It’s about how you need to write, write, and write, as opposed to just thinking about doing so. I spend so much time thinking about my stories that I end up tying myself in knots and never know where to start. It’s one of my worst habits, but one than can be overcome with diligence!
