Okay, here is a few horrible truths my loves:
1) Spring is here and pollen is everywhere.
2) I have been sick with allergies and a cold for the past week or so.
3) I can only breath out of one nostril
4) I haven't eaten solid food in a week
5) I also haven't written anything in a week
Yep, every spring with this, I know. I know the people at my work are tired of me hacking up phlegm every five minutes and trust me it's just as uncomfortable for me. I hate being sick because I can't get any work done on my fics or my novel. My head hurts, my eyes are watery, and I can't enjoy anything anymore. I can't concentrate on the project in front of me long enough to get anything solid down before my eyes start to water and my head hurts. So, in the meantime, I've been editing some of my older chapters in my fics to keep some kind of regiment going.
That's actually another thing I want to do before I curl up and die from this cold: I'm thinking of rewriting the first chapters of both Reaver's Servants and Reconstructing Humanity. You can tell, just by reading them, that they are of my old style of writing. It annoys me, somewhat. I like getting new readers to my work, but I feel sometimes they are a little put off by the first chapters of my older works. First chapters, as we know, can make or break a story. It sets the stage for the rest of the story and if you can't make it through the first chapter, you're not going to finish the story I promise you. So, that's a side project I have going on for the near future.
If anyone has any suggestions as to how I can make these chapters better, don't feel bad about leaving a comment. Or if you just want to plead for me not to keel over from this horrible cold, I'd like that too. Now, to take my Mucinex and fight my way to work.
