For the last ten days I’ve been covered up. Bed sheets … Kleenex … Day Quill … Night Quill … ibuprofen … Glasses of orange juice … antibiotics … Headaches … Nausea … Congestion … the runs. Oh, fun! Sound like the flu to you? Does to me. But it can’t be — I was wise … I did what the medical world advises … I got a flu shot, so it must be impossible. Oh yeah! And the moon is made of green cheese, politicians are truthful, Dolly wears falsies, and the world is flat.
This flu, the one I can’t possibly have, is particularly aggravating. It makes you want to sleep 23 of 24, and concentrating on anything is damn near impossible. As focused as I’ve been able to be is knowing what to do after one of my many trips to the porcelain bus. That took great effort on my part.
As usual, Murphy has been busy, this couldn’t have happened at a worse time. I’m in the middle of querying two novels, rewriting a third, entering two contests, and doing a first draft of the first book of a three book series. This is the “season” in Florida so my appearance schedule doubles. Time is super valuable to me right now, so naturally Murphy is raining on my parade. The bastard!
I’ve been doing lots of speaking and book signings. I’ll catch everybody up in my next few posts. Hopefully, my posts will be on a more regular basis. This week I’ll be speaking about “Florida’s contribution to WWII and WWII’s contribution to Florida” at the Fort Myers Whiskey Creek Women’s Club, Thursday, and will be at the Sun Circle Arts Festival, in Sun City Florida, Saturday. Hope to see some of you in Sun City.
PS – I’ve added the Blue Ridge Book Festival to my appearance list – I’ll be there April 30th & May 1st. More on this later.
