Ick and Mumblings

This has not been a good few days. I’ve had the most painful rejection ever. And today I’ve learned that the cellulitis I had last summer never went away, which would go a fair way to explaining why I’ve not felt myself for far too many months. It came back, and how! yesterday. So I’m in pain again and feeling sick on antibiotics.

But I have been able to see things (writing, my life) in a different light. A clearer one. There are more important things to life than writing and when you’re driven to be succussful (even with the best of intentions) you can miss important things, and nothing’s worth more than happiness. So folks, as hard as you need to work at this writing business, make sure you stay happy and make sure those around you are happy too.
Keep the balance right.

    Very true Nik, balance is key.So sorry to hear about your cellulitis, sounds ghastly, poor you. Do hope that the antib’s kick in super quickly, and get rid of it forever this time.

    Thanks all – much appreciated. Why is it that things that are good for you (say, antibiotics) make you feel so crappy? Ick. Ugh. Pht.Nik

    Very true, Nik, it’s such a delicate balance between life and work, health and life, health and work, and of course, the rest of the family etc… Everything feeds into everything else, and if one thing is a bit off, I find that everything suffers. Feel better soon.T xx

    Sorry to hear you are not so well, Nik. Here’s my best wishes for a speedy recovery and a full one.Commis too on the crappy rejection… when you are feeling physically smashed, something like this can hit you hard and the usual pick-me-up advice of writer friends doesn’t work then. So, just to say I am sorry about this.(btw… not one for balance myself… feel it is over-rated… but with you on the grab handfuls of happiness wherever and when ever you can.)Best wishes to you.D
