Sometimes I need a sick day. Sometimes I need 5 sick days. Nothing is more frustrating than having to put a book on pause, but sometimes that's what my body asks of me. While writing is important to me, my health is more important. I don't just want to write a book right now, I want to write books for decades to come. My grandma is 93, which means if I can make it that long, I've got almost 60 years ahead of me.
I'd better not waste them.
