Top Three Reasons why you should never write while sick in Bed

1. You'll be sleeping with the crumbs from all your meals later that night.

2. Your computer will get so hot you'll mistake it for your fever.

3. You'll write more than you've ever written but start to have gnawing doubts that half of it was written when you were delusional with pain or all the Benedryl you've ingested.


Take my advice: TV might be a better alternative.

Thought bed was the ideal place to dream - for capturing later, preferable? Hope you are on the road to recovery - would give you a lift in that direction if I could! X

oops - preferably. x

How about a good movie, hot tea with honey to recuperate with!? So sorry you feel so yucky! Get well soon as I miss your wonderful blogs!

You're funny!

In the two weeks I've been down with first flu which rolled into pneumonia I must say that I am now enjoying writing in bed with the laptop.

Shake out the sheets in the evening (smile) to avoid the crumbs and then ask hubby to vacumm if you have carpeted floors.

As for the hot laptop, I use a lap tray. It helps.

Can't help you with #3 because I feel the same way only it's not Benadryl but three other meds UGH!

Bless you unto GOOD HEALTH in Jesus Name. I pray the same for myself and anyone else who needs it!

Love ya!

HA! I wrote most of "Calling Him Lord" while pregnant on bed rest. Perhaps that is why is is not published or finished yet. LOL.
