I'm Boring ... and Sick

Tip of the Day: My friend Sarra Cannon is celebrating 100,000 sales of her Peachville Demons series. Check out her contest!!!!

Sometimes I think  writers are supposed to be glamorous 24/7. Who else gets paid for making things up (other than politicians)?

This past week, my life has not been glamorous.

I've been sick - fever, cough, congestion, etc. I spent the better part of three days in bed, moaning and whining. It's not attractive.

The best part is that I can still work from home! YAY!

The worst part? I can still work from home. Boo. :p

Next week my newest release, The Sundering, goes on tour. I had planned to start writing my guest posts last Friday, but that's the day I first felt crummy. I thought, Hey, I'll just do them Monday. No big deal. I already knew what I wanted to write about it - and, for me, the writing is the easy part.

So by Monday and Tuesday, I was running a low-grade fever. I dragged myself to my computer and it took me hours to write what normally would have taken less than an hour. It was painful - mentally and physically. But, I got it done.

What's the moral of the story, kids? Get your work done early.

Usually I have this blog post written and scheduled on Monday or Tuesday. Today, I'm writing off the cuff. I'm still sick, but I'm well enough I have to resume my normal mommy duties, like shuttling the kids to school, doing laundry, etc., while still feeling crummy.

And this blog post? Sigh. It's boring and a bit lame, but it's real life, yo. Besides, there's nothing interesting in the epublishing world this week. Nothing controversial to post about.

I'm giving y'all permission to take today off. Do something fun. Play with your new iPhone (mine is supposed to arrive on my doorstep within the next few hours). Lay down in bed and read a good book. Enjoy today!

Megg, Miss Enchanted ePubber
