Hello! The next short story, a Sci-Fi titled Them, will be starting up next Friday. As there's no story part this week, it seemed like a good idea to me that I do a Self Care Check-in (both as a reminder for me and for you that we need to take care of ourselves).
This check-in is important because May was a rough month for me. Between sick kids, my husband working nights, extra appointments and chores, and a body that hates me, I've been surviving through more pain pills than I like to take... with the yucky discovery that Naproxen and I are not compatible (as in it doesn't touch the pain and comes with an added bonus of depression). So much for that as a helpful new prescription.
Now think of one thing that makes you smile. It can be anything as long as the smile is real. Open your hands palm up if you're able to, take one breath as deep as you can, unclench your jaw and allow your shoulders to relax. Now give yourself a compliment. Hope you have a great weekend!
Why are Authors crazy? I can't answer that, but I can provide bits of my own thoughts so that you can piece together why I may be.
