I made the cover myself. I would love to get feedback in comments if you can spare the time. Thanks!
I was just getting over a sinus infection and the flu. It was a difficult time for me but I stuck to my schedule and my goals and got this short novel out on time.
This week it's been a matter of trying to rest and get better from a cold I've also contracted. I want to be consistent with my goals while taking care of my health at the same time. Oh, did I mention I have asthma and environmental illness. It's been an exhilarating and demanding time all at once. There have been two constants in this whole affair that have kept me grounded. My husband's support and the fact that I have a gym in my home.
I can't say enough about having a loved one, even one person, provide a source of encouragement. It's been a godsend. I can share my successes with him and he actually listens!
Going to the gym (we have one in our home since I can't go out to the local gym without getting ill because of my disability) has helped me to stay focussed and provided me with rec time to read some of those marketing books that can be dry when you want to do something else, but not such a bad read when you're tied to the elliptical!
Well, I guess that's it for me. I'm a writer, so I gotta go write. See you back here soon I hope. Happy writing!
