Ouch

I often talk about if it’s possible to create when you’re ill. I never mentioned if you’re injured. As much as creating while you’re ill depends on what the problem is, that’s even truer with an injury.

If you stand while you work, a bad leg or back might keep you from it for a while. If you have a bad hand, that could eliminate a lot too.

Today I have basically three of those things going on. I have a bad leg, which is getting better; a bad wrist, which either improves or worsens depending on the weather; and a back ache. I bent over wrong earlier and felt a twinge. I debated on if I felt like I could get anything done or if I needed to call it a night already and put my heating pad to use.

I’m using a back support and sitting to write. I thought I would give it a go and see how it works out. So far, so good. As long as that continues, I’ll get to work on RealmWalker. (I’m pretty much at the halfway point, as far as word count goes.)

The wood door is closed (the front door), so the wind won’t be banging the storm door every time I get in the groove of writing, so that won’t bother me.

My excuses are vanishing one by one.

As long as my ouchies stay low, I’m good to go. Are you?

Happy creating.

  1. Good for you that you found a way to keep going! I do that, too, and sometimes I think I don’t know when to stop.

    1. Yeah. Sometimes knowing when to stop is difficult, too. Meanwhile, I forgot about my back ache, got really into the story, and passed my goal for the day. Now we’ll see what happens when I try to get up.
