Not Quite Out of the Woods Yet

You know how you feel like you’re out of the woods and then you look up and all of a sudden you find the woods have moved with you and you’re still smack in the middle there? Well, that’s me, kinda.

I mentioned yesterday that I’m finally feeling better. Well, I got a call at work from my wife on Monday and it turns out she has what my daughter and I had. Since she took such great care of me, I left work and went home to take care of her. Mostly it was a day hanging out with my daughter and offering drinks of water from time to time. I feel so bad for her because I know what she is going through.

Unfortunately, this meant I would have to miss my writing group, and also miss out on critiques of my story again! One of the members of the group was kind enough to offer to send her handwritten notes to me via snail mail, so I won’t have to wait an entire other month for those. Disappointing, but what are you gonna do?

I already started on my entry for part 2 of my newspaper’s writing contest. My goal is to make the story as interesting as possible (that hasn’t worked for me so far, but I don’t care). I have a pretty cool idea and have already written half the entry. I think this one is going to be better than the first. As always, I will share once I’ve submitted it to the newspaper.

I’m feeling a slight bit of confidence with my writing the past couple weeks, which is rare for me. I guess I’ll just ride it as long as I can. How about you?
