I am no stranger to restlessness. Any writer on submission understands the torture of it, so there’s no need to go into the reasons why.

However, recovering from surgery adds a whole new level. I am now having days where I feel kind of good. I never fail to do too much and pay for it, but I’m soooo sick of recovering and I was sick a long time. Those times of “feeling good” make me want to catch up well, EVERYTHING.

So, what can I do to keep myself from doing too much physically? WRITE. Funny thing is, I noticed that lately, I’m writing a lot of action scenes. Fitting eh? 😉

Today, one of my characters is going to fight some space pirates. Guess I’ll let her burn off this crazy restlessness so I can sit on my butt and heal some more.


About Rinda Elliott

Writer.I love unusual stories and credit growing up in a family of curious life-lovers who moved all over the country. Books and movies full of fantasy, science fiction and romance kept us amused, especially in some of the stranger places. For years, I tried to separate my darker side with my humorous and romantic one. I published short fiction, but things really started happening when I gave in and mixed it up. When not lost in fiction, I love making wine, collecting music, gaming and spending time with my husband and two children. I’m represented by Miriam Kriss of the Irene Goodman Agency.

    I’m glad you’re writing as you let your body heal. It can be rough when you’re used to being active.

    I’ve been inactive a long, long time because I didn’t feel well. But now that I’m starting to make a comeback, I’m ready to make one fully. 😉

    Hang in there, girl. Consider this downtime an investment in future health. You don’t want any backsliding. 🙂
