As I was standing at my sink a few days ago, I felt a familiar slipping sensation in my lower back, and barely made it to the bed. Now, I know bed rest isn’t ideal for a back injury, so I have been getting up and exercising gently, but it leaves me at a bit of a loose end when it comes to working on my book. Sitting up for hours at my laptop station or at my desk upstairs with the PC (my preferred location to work) are both out.
However, with my tablet and Google Drive, I am thankfully getting plenty done from the comfort of my bed or couch, while wrapped in a heating blanket and smothered in anti-inflammatory gel. I’m sure I will look back at this soon and laugh, but for now I’m focussed on keeping up with my writing schedule and not letting this derail me too much.
