The Rough Draft

If you can't go through it. Go around it.

I’ve been laid up for the last few days with some sort of skin allergy. The best the doctor could do for me is tell me to load up on two different types of antihistamine and rub a topical steroid cream over the effected areas. Much like the common cold, this type of thing is hard to determine what might have set off the reaction.

Trouble is, I need to write and being whacked out on medication whose first warning is not to operate heavy machinery is not conducive to good writing. Well any writing really as that first day I was doing my best impression of somebody on Thorazine in One flew over the Cuckoo’s nest.

Yesterday I cut back on the meds just enough to stay awake (with the help of copious amounts of Caffeine) and got my word count out. How good the writing is is something I’ll look at during the revision. Though from past experience, some of my best writing has come out of being really messed up. You know, when you’re too stoned to get in your own way.

So for now, I’m trying not to scratch and still get my word count out.
