Welcome to another Tuesday with me Amber Skyze! I've been having a rough two weeks. The day job is sucking the life out of me and one of my three dogs has been very sick. He's been hospitalized for the third time last night. They couldn't find a reason for this 100lb dog to be so sick. He's lost 10lbs (wish it were me), but seriously...it's frustrating and devastating to watch our dog grow sicker every day. They've run a battery of tests on him and all come back negative.
Last night it seems that they may have found an obstruction after all. Mind you he's had x-rays and ultrasounds, coming up empty-handed. They're going to do one more ultrasound this morning to be certain. If he has something in there he'll be whisked off to surgery. Mind you we don't have pet insurance, but you can bet your sweet #$% we'll be getting it after this. I'm sure by the time this is all over our costs will top 6k. But for a 4 yr old lab I can't justify putting him down or letting him suffer any longer. Please forgive me for going on about my woes, but I felt it necessary to explain why my recent posts have been excerpts. I just didn't have the strength to do any serious writing. So now that I've gotten my woes off my chest I'll change the topic to writing.
The other day on my local chapters loop they started discussing what do writer's wear when writing? I'm sure everyone has heard the stories of writer's who are dressed in pj's all day long, wearing fuzzy pink slippers and even a boa if they want. I must confess it was always my fantasy too. Oh and I remember about 20 years ago thinking they were all drunks too! :) I'm glad to find out that most aren't alcoholics.
Back to writing attire. I found out that some NY and National Bestsellers in fact do write in their jammies. Flannel seems to be the pj's of choice and only in certain colors. I must admit I work from home so I too write in my jammies. I write at 4am so it's understandable. I'm not picky about what I wear as long as it isn't tight fitting. I don't like clothes that constrict. That was the one benefit I found from working from home. No more business suits or business attire.
So for all the writer's out there what do you wear when writing...
