And another apology

Okay, so after apologising for being a bad blogger its now been another 2 months since the last time I blogged.
I won't bore you all with the details but essentially I am no longer dialysing at home and will never be again. I am now going to the hospital three evenings a week after work and don't get home until at least 11.30pm so I've got yet another routine to get used to. I 'll have a while to get used to this one though as it should be like this until I get a transplant whenever that may be. Hopefully I'll be able to go on the list this summer.

Anyway, that wasn't the reason I came on. I'm not criticising myself because last year I had other things on my mind, but well to be honest my writing successes have been almost nil recently and I'd rather like that to change. So I'm going back to basics and writing like I used to when I had more success. However I've been out of touch with the short story world for a while and I just wondered what was new out there and what's been happening.

Also if anyone has any tips on how to regain my mojo, I'd love too hear them

I've been a terrible blogger and terrible at commenting. Still having trouble with logging in :0(

Hope the writing's going well. And I hope you're okay.


Teresa Ashby said...

So glad to see you back, Colette, but I'm sorry that you're now having to go to the hospital so often.

You might find your mojo comes back if you write about your recent experiences. You could even do it from the point of view of someone else - a nurse for instance. See yourself through their eyes and it becomes their story - sometimes works :-) xx

I do hope you get your transplant soon, Colette. I used to be sister on a ward where people were dialysed awaiting transplants, so have some idea of what you're going through.

Suzanne = I'm glad its not just me.
Teresa - good idea. I might give that a try. I have written about it from my perspective but through someone else's eyes could be interesting.
Frances - I hope so too.

Thanks ladies for your good wishes. The truth is though that I feel absolutely great, better than I have in years. Going to the hospital 3 times a week isn't so bad either - it gives me a chance to catch up on my reading (and the odd bit of writing).

Try and write something every day. A word, a sentence, a paragraph will all add up and set you on a routine.x

I do try Debbie but some days I don't manage it.
