Two good days in a row

Most of yesterday and today, I’ve had minimal headaches, no migraines, and moderate rather than severe dizziness. I am cautiously optimistic that I might be able to get back to work soon.

Work is:

  • Finish Talysmana, and get back to Dreaming The Dead.
  • Finishing the How To Revise Your Novel bonuses.
  • Getting my prospective editors for Rebel Tales some stories from real writers.
  • Finishing the upgrade on HollyLisle.com (it’s coming–I fixed the font today. 😀 ) so I can start adding NEW articles.
  • Move all the courses I’ve created, the HollyShop content, the writer crash tests, and other “teaching writing” things I’ve done to one site, so writers can actually FIND everything. (The articles I’ve done for writers on this site will stay put, though.
  • Finish writing Create A World Clinic.

These aren’t in order—just in the order I’ve thought of them.

    Aha! Gratitude for two good days–good attitude. It’s an attitude destined to prevail.

    So, given your teensy to-do list, what will you be doing in your free time? Giggle.

    I’m so happy for you, Holly. Thumbs up here.

    I’m looking forward to the new look and the new imprints. Perhaps I’ll even get to contribute something along the way.

    Take care and God bless.

    It’s been a while since I’ve been to this site so I’m shocked and sorry to see all the trials you’ve been subjected to. Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

    I’m so glad the headaches are easing up! It’s wonderful that you sound enthusiastic about your projects again. 😀

    Holly, you’re the man.

    Wait. NO. You’re NOT the man. You’re the WOman.

    Aw, heck. You know what I mean.

    My two cents … wWhen you feel better, don’t increase your activity too much. It might be a good time to decrease activity and rest a bit more. Your body is dealing with a new normal, let it get used to it.

    Holly,

    I know you have a lot to do, and that you are used to doing a lot. But take it slow. Don’t let your work outpace your healing and trigger a relapse.

    Even baby steps will move you forward.

    “Go, Holly! Go, Go, Holly!” I’ve got a whole squad of virtual cheerleaders cheering (quietly, so as not to worsen the headaches) for you, Holly. Here’s hoping these two days are the start of a positive and feel-good turnaround for you.
