Writing While Sick

It’s very hard to concentrate on blogging or writing-related tasks when you’re sick.  I know this from my very personal experience right now, as I’m trying to prepare for NaNoWriMo next month, but also sick with a nasty cold that has been going around.  The problem with being unable to sleep and on cold medication is that I’m also unable to concentrate, and writing requires a lot of concentration.

So what can I do?  Things that don’t require an excessive amount of concentration.  I’m organizing my Scrivener files and moving things to the new file.  I’m updating character sheets.  I’m cleaning up my writing folder on my flash drive, making sure everything is up to date between that and my PC, and backing things up.

I’m getting stuff done.  Just much more slowly.
