As of today, I’m slowly crawling back to my daily life. My cold turned into bronchitis and put me in bed for the better part of the weekend. I haven’t wanted to do much of anything except falling asleep watching television. But something weird seems to happen to me when I get sick. When I’m falling asleep, or after I have, my creativity seems to blossom and I come up with some of the craziest story ideas. I’ll return to wakefulness and it’s like a bookshelf of stories waiting to be written. So as I’m recovering from my illness I’ve wrapped myself in a blanket of new characters, ideas, and storylines that are driving my recovery. I’m curious to hear if this happens to any of my readers. Does illness bring a creative burst into your lives as well?
