This past week has the been full of set-backs, testing what little patience I have. My day job has been more trying than ever. Working on a Telemetry floor in a busy hospital is fast-paced to start off with. Add in the flu epidemic that’s raging across the company and we’ve found ourselves slammed with patients filling every room, with more waiting to get in. I’ve never looked so forward to having five days off to myself.
My sister recently had a hip replacement. Life throws in a curve ball, and I find myself at the Emergency room, then packing clothes to spend the next day and night with her. Of course, I packed my lap top, determined to continue working on edits. Needless to say, not much of that was accomplished. Such is life. It tends to undermine the best of intentions.
We all get set in our ways, set to a certain routine. I’m no different. I prefer working on my desktop computer. I do own a laptop, but I haven’t used it enough to be truly comfortable with it. Sitting for hours going through a manuscript, searching for errors is tedious. Doing it while in a different setting, on different equipment is distracting, at best. I am working, just not getting a lot accomplished. For someone like me, who adheres to schedules, it’s frustrating.
It will get done. I’m bound and determined to see that A Destiny Denied is the best it can be, and released on time. Then, I can move forward to my other projects. For now, I’m taking deep breaths and focusing on what’s in front of me. One step at a time . . .
Till next week,
