You can always know when I’m sick – not because I post constant updates about how lethargic I’m feeling. In fact, quite the opposite. Sickness sidelines my writing. I might be home or I might go off and do things because I’ve made a commitment and I want to honor it. I almost never call in sick because I have a little cold – I push through and do whatever I have to do. But somehow, I can’t write. Sickness sidelines my creativity.
I’ve been having a cold. I am still coughing but I’m much better today. So here I am, ready to write again but just barely and sharing what I do when I am laid up with the sniffles. Currently, I am…
Reading: Attachments by Rainbow Rowell (Fiction) So far, I’m enjoying the set-up of the book. I read one of Rowell’s books last year (Landline) and didn’t love it but I keep hearing people rave about her writing so I am giving her another chance to wow me. 😀
I’m also reading The Shallows: What The Internet Is Doing To Our Brains by Nicholas Carr (Non-Fiction) and loving the quotes in this book. I am inclined to agree with his perspective but looking for what else I can learn.
Writing: Nothing (see why on the above explanation)
Eating: a lot of fruit.
Watching: Netflix. Sometimes, I feel like I’m subscribing for no reason because a couple months might go by without me even opening the Netflix app but then there are other times like this when I spend a day or two in bed and just want to watch TV all day – I mean, it’s not like I can write or anything, right? I watched a documentary/movie called Meet The Patels about a 30 year old Indian man exploring the idea of an arranged marriage. It’s made by the guy and his sister and their real live parents. Anyone else watched this yet?
Wearing: Pastels. It’s Spring weather in NYC. Actually, today the temperature is expected to climb into the 70s so it feels more like summer but I’ll take it. Perfect weather to recuperate.
Running: This morning, I felt strong enough to head out for a run. I only went 1.5 miles and it was slow – no records being broken or anything but it felt good to be back outside and even if I could crank out a mile and a half, it was way more than I had initially felt capable of so I was proud.
