Three years ago this month, I was driving to New Jersey for a weekend a bus hit me. The bus driver took off, and left me with a totaled car and a visit to the hospital. I had shoulder surgery, physical therapy for these past three years, and still have limited use of my left hand.
Some days I write for hours while other days I’m in bed with a stiff neck and a migraine. As a result, writing on a daily schedule is difficult for me. But my love of reading, writing stories and poetry guide me through my bad days. I try to think of some new plot details or scenes which I can add to my story to help avoid frustration.
You may not have these types of injuries, but I imagine you have days when you don’t feel well enough to write. Do you get frustrated with your ailment, or do you make good use of the time by thinking of plot details?
