The Writing Blues

This week I've been sick. This week - a few of us have been sick or life has just gotten in the way. Our wordcounts may lag, but any words we wrote this week are good words. Don't beat yourself up for what you haven't done - try harder today.

To help you on your way I have two motivational videos to share with you.

The first is for inspiration to keep going even in the face of adversity. To climb that mountain, to swim that ocean, to write that book.

Ahhh yes, we all need a bit of a push sometimes - but it's better if it can come from within.

And this one is well known - Mel Gibson in a Kilt, riding a horse and rousing his countrymen. Well not his countrymen - a bunch of actors really but still a stiring speech.

They may take away our computers, but they can't take away our words. Write well my friends.

They can also chase you with pointy swords too ......

But the pen/cil is mightier than the sword (or computer)!

take lots and lots of vitamins, drink plenty of fluids, have really really really hot baths and put vaporub on your feet before you go to bed at night. That way the vampires who keep returning your flu to you will leave you alone coz your feet with smell. LOL.
