Sprained Mental Ankle
I am taking the day off today from exercising and walking. I am just bone tired. I tried to sleep, to take a nap but that didn’t work so I meditated instead. For the most part i’ve been working on a book called “Safe”. I love this book but I have no idea how it is going to end. Right now the heroin is in dire straights having to change her identity again. It’s an exciting part of the book but I also have to give back story and introduce other characters. It’s getting complicated and my tired brain can’t keep up. I need time to work out the details. But I am very positive about this one. It’s good. I’m not half as happy with the “Madeline Angel” series than I am “Safe.”
I had a bad mental day yesterday. I decided I would just be tired today. Todd let me sleep in and I didn’t get out of bed until 9 am. I like to be up earlier than that, but today he kept the black out curtain closed and shut the door. It was a good idea. Mental illness needs rest just like a sprained ankle sometimes. For me my mental illness has a sprained ankle today.
So, so far today the rest has been pretty peaceful except my guilt of doing nothing. A little housework and that’s it. No mopping or vacuuming. No dog walking or dumbbells. Just my Mac and me trying to push out a really good book. I want to have people rooting for Lucy (the heroin). There is a love triangle coming too. It’s been in the making just not confronted yet.
So much good stuff in there. I can’t wait to see how it turns out.
So, now that I have a sprained mental ankle I’m going to pretend shop for awhile.
Thats always fun. I just can’t spend any money. But I can fill up bags full of what I want.
