“That’s not even scary,” Nicky said, leaning back away from the crackling campfire. Tall and thin, he wore his lanky hair in a bun.

“There’s no such thing as werewolves,” Amanda agreed. Comfy in t-shirt and jeans, she had decent meat on her bones..

From their places across the campfire, Rebekah cast her mate Lyon a knowing glance.

“Just in case, we should stick close to the fire,” he said, implying the group would be safer there.

Rebekah knew the truth, though. Soon, the full moon would rise, and Lyon preferred his meals preheated.

This is my submission for Friday Fictioneers, where every week intrepid adventurers set out to create 100-word flash fiction. Some of it perhaps not so fictional after all….

IWSG: Health Concerns

InsecureWritersSupportGroup2

It’s the first Wednesday of the month and that means IWSG Day and I missed last month because I was really sick at the time, like serious chest cold sick.

Speaking of chest cold, I always get fall/winter allergies, but this past winter has been killer for me, in large part because of the up and down weather we’re having here in the Northeastern U.S. I’ve definitely been feeling down and like I Can’t Do Anything Right!! But at the same time I know myself and my body and health well enough to know – of course that isn’t actually true.

Just wondering, if anyone else has ever dealt with seasonal/long-term not feeling well ness, how it impacts your writing – or doesn’t, and what you’ve learned to do to cope? I try to remember to take allergy meds, and actually putting a reminder might help because that’s usually where my downward spiral starts. Forget to take meds, start to notice I’m coughing and congested a lot, wonder why that is while plowing through what I’m doing, and so on.

I keep hoping the weather will sort of settle down to cold or hot or whatever, but it just doesn’t. Today it’s warm like spring out and I will enjoy some brisk outdoor walking time, but it’ll go back to being winter in a couple of days. This yo-yo weather!

Anyway, hope all my fellow writers are having a good 2019 so far, better than me anyway. 🙂 I just want the congestion to stop, and it would be really great if my stories could finish and edit themselves too. And a pony. Or a unicorn. While I’m wishing for things.
