It’s been a tough past two weeks. I had a nasty cyst removed from my forehead and two days later I found out I needed to have eye surgery on my right eye for a detached retina. This being the second eye surgery after suffering the same detached retina issue in my left eye less than two years ago. Blame it on my bad optical genes.
What makes it more frustrating is that I am nearing the stretch run for completing The Leopard Apocalypse, the third book in my Leopard King Saga Historical Fantasy series. To add to that, I also was just beginning the rewrite for my new publisher Kensington Gore for my novella Kill Zombies. The plan was to expand the novella into a novel for my publisher. Some of you may recall I signed a two-book publishing deal last February.
Well both are on hold for now.
It sucks. I know.
But some things are more important that writing. Yeah. It’s true. So I’ve been taking time off from writing. One from a Flagship series close to my heart and the other being a possible income grabber from a publisher I’m under contract to.
But there’s no other way around it. Without eyes I’m not able to write. So rest I must.
I’d like to hear from anyone out there who’s faced health challenges while in the midst of a productive work spree. As always, your comments are appreciate.
Talk to you soon!
