I've have been disgustingly ill for 13 days now, and have spent the majority of that in bed. I still feel very weak and dizzy, but I think the antibiotics are finally starting to work so I'm back on the site for the first time in over a week.
Did a fair bit of writing this morning, which was a bit of a surprise. Well, sort of. Am I the only person in the world whose writing binges coincide with various stages of my menstrual cycle, lol?
Unfortunately, the thing I was writing earlier is yet another new story. I really want to just focus on one story and get the thing finished. I think that would be immensely satisfying, of course, but also very good for my health. I have so many stories stored in my brain and although theoretically we have unlimited space up there, I don't fell like I do. Honestly, I can choose any story from my collection and know exactly where I'm up to, even what the next sentence is going to be, just like I pressed 'Pause' only five minutes ago. Considering I have over 20 stories on the go now, that doesn't leave a lot of room for things like remembering what I wanted from the fridge, or what was on the shopping list that I left at home because by brain's too clogged to remember the list I need to remember what we need, if you get my drift.
I'm like one of those compulsive hoarders you see on television. Their house is so full of crap that there's not even any room in there for the hoarder, and they have to move into a caravan in the driveway, which can't be moved because the driveway is full of crap too. That's my brain. And if I can just get one of these stories out of there, if I can finish it and free up a little bit of space, I think that will act like a bit of a catalyst. Suddenly I'll have room to move. I'll be able to look at everything stashed in there a bit better, figure out what I need and what I don't. I'll be able to throw out some of the rubbish and dust off some of the more useful things (like my memory) and start using them again.
Okay, I'm going to go into the forum somewhere right now and set up a vote or something. Can you set up polls here?? Off I go.
