Gaming - Critical Failure

The Joy of Working in an Incubation Factory

Ah, yes. I had forgotten what it was like to work at the Evil *achoo!* Empire. Two weeks in and I've got something. Sunday, I noticed when I swallowed. No pain. Just... noticed it. Monday morning, the stuffiness was there and the throat was sore but I was eating like a horse on both days. Didn't know why. Now I do. My body needed the fuel to fight the cold. By Monday afternoon, I knew I had something. I called Wades Guns and postponed my gun class until the 1st. Messing around with firearms while distracted and sick = bad. It killed me to hear the steady *blam* *blam* *blam* of someone on the range while I postponed my class again. I really wanted to be there.

It's Tuesday and I'm pretty sure I have a light head cold. If I was contagious, it would have been this weekend. So, I'm at work, medicine in hand, sucking down liquids and vitamin C. If this gets any worse, I won't be going or doing anything this weekend - not my trip to Eugene nor Crimson Dawn nor the Abney Park birthday party bash *sob*.

Plus, I only wrote about 500 words yesterday and I'm not sure they are good words. I have no time to be sick. I still have 5000 more words to write by the 1st.

Nealy White?

Anyone know who this is? I just got an email from her inviting me to come play WoD with her group. The name is very familiar but I don't know why.

I'm feeling better about my word count today. I polished up the 450 words from yesterday and went nuts on the stuff today. 1475 new words, good words. I'm pausing because I'm starting to sound like a Bitter Sweet Siren when I reread my work out loud to hear how the words flow and because I have a question into my co-author on something he wrote. At this rate, I'm going to turn the THING into Sovereign Press before the deadline and even before they announce the project in press and I can say what it actually is.

Which is good because I still need to get my June TEoP story written and polished by the 5th.
