I truly admire people who can manage to write no matter what's going on around them. People who make their deadlines by writing in doctor's office waiting rooms or hospital rooms. People who are obviously much more focused and dedicated than me.
But I'm trying. Even when I can't concentrate and my head and heart hurts and I feel beaten down. I'm grateful for all that I have and sad over all that I've lost or stand to lose soon.
I want to lose myself in my character's world and lives and escape my worries and petty fears.
So here I go.
