Duvet days, reading and writing

Duvet Days

Health has thrown me a curveball with episodes of vertigo on top of everything else so duvet days have become the norm. At first, I was fine with the idea of snuggling down with Nigel or Pip to recover; I had books to read and review, jelly beans to eat and of course, an imaginary world to explore and write about but then I realized screens made my vertigo worse. It is hard to read or write when the words tilt and swim. instagram imageMy euphoria of hitting the 40,000 word count a week ago has dwindled. It is now increasing at snail’s pace as I snatch a few legible words here and there on paper and screen. I just have to remember the number of words is getting higher. In the back of my mind, I have Louise Jensen’s voice telling me she wrote 200 words a day on her novel and she is a successful best seller author. If you haven’t read her books you are missing a treat. My reviews for her The Gift and The Surrogate are on Duvet Dwellers Books.

Thank Goodness I have an old-fashioned Kindle with no backlight and several books from the library to read – these are much easier on the eyes. Getting the reviews written and published to Duvet Dwellers Books is harder but I will share them soon – hopefully.
