Apologies and Thank-yous

Apologies and thank yous are in order for all those who left comments on my meme posts in the last two weeks. I feel so bad that I haven't dropped by to return many of your visits. I feel I should drop out of the memes until I am able to follow through on that obligation. Visiting your contributions is more than half the fun anyway. But I'm afraid I would stop posting altogether if I quit Thursday Thirteen, Poetry Train, and Friday Snippets even temporarily. Besides the fact that coming up with something else to post about seems like a monumental challenge right now, dropping out of the memes would further demoralize me.

Speaking of demoralizing: I think I may have already inadvertently dropped out of 70 Days of Sweat as I completely forgot to make the mandatory Sunday check-in. Not to mention that I haven't been able to make any new word count in two weeks now. I haven't reneged on my commitment to spend quality time with my story world each and every day though. Intense, vivid, detailed daydreaming of the characters, settings and events keeps the pump primed, is just as entertaining as TV, DVD, or reading fiction while having the advantage of being doable with closed eyes and completely relaxed body.

What is really bumming me most about this situation is that I've been denying myself the privilege of even reading many of my favorite blogs because I won't let myself go to the ones I owe comments to unless I am prepared to leave comments. Being prepared entails sitting up on the edge of the bed in a position to accommodate typing. This uses up my energy in less than an hour. Since I typically spend twenty to sixty minutes on each blog I visit you can see my conundrum. Thus, I am wondering if it would be totally tacky of me to compose a few pre-typed comments that I could paste in while I visit in a variety of reclining positions that allow me to read the screen and use the touch pad for clicking and scrolling but will not allow for ten-fingered typing and some no visual of the keyboard at all, which rules out hunt and peck too.

That has been one of the contributing factors in my watching 100 episodes of Gilmore Girls in eleven days. Though some might think this last is the major contributing factor to my continued fatigue, muscle weakness and lack of energy. :)

4 tell me a story:

Joy, don't worry about it! Seriously, when you get on your feet again, stop by and comment. In the meantime, let us stop by, wish you well, and say hello. :-)

Yeah, what Joely said, and seriously, if you can't think of something to say, say that you just stopped by to say hi.

I wouldn't spend one ounce of your energy worrying about commenting on blogs when you don't feel well. When I have migraine problems, I can't bear to look at the computer screen, so I know what you feel like in my own way. Work on what you can, when you can. You will always be welcomed no matter how long you've been sidelined.

Don't worry about leaving snippets when you don't feel like it, Joy Renee. This is supposed to be fun, not work! The minute it becomes work is the minute I say bye to it.
