No writing for you!

This is my short weekend, and I had one important chore to attend to. The appointment fell at about the perfect time to disrupt my whole Saturday. I got my second Covid vaccination today.

I wanted to jump aboard Lanternfish and move the story forward, but sometimes you have to face reality. Next weekend isn’t looking that favorable either. Old What’s Her Face is off the same days I am, and our daughter is coming for a visit. Family first is kind of a personal rule. If they go shopping or something, I might snitch an hour. I’ll have to play that by ear.

I did come up with some fun ideas while waiting in the parking lot for my appointment. This afternoon, I started two new storyboards for Lizzie and The Hat. I don’t know why I do this to myself, because any ability to write them is a couple of years away. Still, if they exist, it’s easier to tweak and perfect them over time. Hopefully, readers will still be interested when I get that far. They are pretty fun ideas.

Maybe tomorrow I can find enough time to add back material to Lunar Boogie. After that, I can send it to my formatter. Lisa Burton posters are on order, and I could get this out before June. This has always been something I wanted to do, and never made it before. If it goes into June, I’ll hold off on publication until Fall.

I also wrote something for Story Empire. It won’t post until May, so I didn’t schedule it yet. Gives me time to make it pretty.

Last injection, I felt like my arm was going to fall off. So far nothing like that. In two weeks I’ll be bulletproof.

  1. Good luck tomorrow. The 2nd shot sapped my energy the next day. Still mustered enough to write though.

  4. I had my second jab yesterday and today I feel a little as though I have been run over. Small price for achieving bullitproofness!

    Bulletproof is the way to go. Hope you can just rest today, Craig. Wishing you vivid dreams and spark even more stories. 😊

  6. My arm hurt with the first shot, with the second, I had about 24-36 hours of lethargy. After that, I felt great! Good luck.

  7. Congrats on your second shot! Yeah, my arm killed me after the first shot. Our second is this week. Yay! We can’t wait to go out to eat and see family again. It’s been too long, but there’s hope at the end of this dark tunnel. 🙂

  9. Yay for bulletproof! Getting the shot messed up your writing time, but I’m so glad you got your second one. And good luck meeting your June publish for Lizzie!

  10. Congrats on that second shot! Mine is scheduled for Thursday.
    I managed a short chapter this weekend, but I probably won’t get any writing in for the next two due to family commitments.

    And like you, I have a story idea nagging me that I need to get down on paper, even though I know it will probably be next year before I tackle it. Those ideas are so persistent!

  12. Hi Craig, I’m glad to know you’ve had both your shots. I also have weekends like this – they get blown out of the water by other commitments.

  13. Two new storyboards? That’s great. Better to have too many ideas than too few.

  14. I thought the first dose was worse – my arm hurt for days. The second was a breeze – hope yours was too!

  15. My second shot is scheduled for next week. I am prepared to possibly feel sapped for a day or two, but it will be worth it. I can visualize you sitting in line waiting with your mental wheels churning out new ideas. 🙂 If only those around you could have glimpsed the scenes inside your head.

  18. How wonderful that you got your second vac, Craig. I get my second one in two days. I’m glad you faced reality, but don’t get stuck there for too long.

    Glad you’re fully vaccinated now, and don’t seem to be suffering badly with reactions.
