Being Productive When You're Sick
I feel like a big cheater with this post. I know the group is for writers, about writing, but all I want to talk about right now is my November Sketch Challenge. This is the first year I've done anything like this, and because it's the first time, I really don't want to let myself down. So, sick or not, I've drawn. In fact, somehow this challenge has pushed me on through the sickness. Even on days that I felt so awful all I wanted to do was stay in bed, I'd rest, and by evening I'd be drawing again.
When I go to work, I look forward to coming home and doing my nightly sketch. During the day, I'm hoping someone has seen the sketches and smiled at them. The idea was a brainstorm of mixed notions that turned out better than I expected. And the social aspect is one of my favorite parts. No one likes to do art (or writing) just to hide it in a corner.
So, my question for this month's post is: How do you handle productivity when you're facing sickness and other obstacles?
