Writing and Life

Trying to write during the hard times in life
I just had surgery. Major Surgery. I thought during recovery I'd have plenty of time to write...I was wrong. My mind has been so boggled by pain medication that I find myself not being able to concentrate.

I'm having a hard time moving around, so the computer has been my life-line and yet I can't seem to focus on my manuscript.

Maybe it's because I'm at the editing stages. I took a break from it, thinking that by the time I got back to it I'd be ready to edit and finish it. I guess I was wrong. I need to finish it and be done with it while other ideas are bouncing in my head wanting to escape.

I'm not sure how a writer stays motivated. Especially when the sales are just not coming and it seems as if no one cares what you are writing about.

I'm not ready to give up...yet. Discouraged as I am, I am determined to make this dream become a reality.

Hopefully after I recover I can get back to work and daily life which in turn will motivate me to get back to writing. I miss the escape it gives me.
