I've set my goal that my first draft of my young adult adventure novel, "The Long Winter" will be completed by December 31. So, I know I should be writing right now. My muse is hiding under a rock. I'm laying here in bed, my back and leg are hurting badly and the pain seems to have absorbed all my spare brain power. Now, I know that I'm not the only writer to suffer from chronic pain. For those of you who have been there, what do you do to get past it? For those of you who haven't been there, please don't post some bromide. That really is the last thing I need right now.
