My Book Still Sleeps

The Bell Mountain Series - Reformed Reviews

It’s been a month now since I worked on The Witch Box, and that ain’t good.

I’m not sure I’ve recovered from my illness to the point where the quality of my writing is where it ought to be. This is critical: I have it in my mind that this will be my best book since Bell Mountain itself: but not if my concentration flags as I’m writing it. I have to be at my best if this book is to live up to my hopes for it. I’m so tempted to get back to it!

I’ve also got to take down the Christmas tree. That’s a two hour job, and I still don’t have two hours’ worth of energy.

Patty advises me to wait another week or two before I go back to the book. I asked for her advice, and I’m going to take it. Can’t help it, losing all of January. *Sigh*

Maybe I can do the tree a little bit each day until it’s done. Tally-ho.

  1. Doing a little each day is the only way I can get through my tasks these days. Gets frustrating to not be able to work as I always have, but I really have to do it this way.

  2. Lee, as much as we like your books, we love you much more and want you to be well. Just take care of yourself, rest as much as you need to — and are able to — and wait for the Lord to call you back to work. “Be still and wait for the Lord.” (Ps. 37)

    And by the way, you could have fooled us about your supposed inability to achieve your usual high quality of writing. Your posts and columns have been spot on. 🙂
