I’m starting in the ICU tomorrow. I’ll be there for a month. Then I got onto two ward months. I’ll pop up to gasp for air at the beginning of March, when I’ll have two glorious, blessed weeks of vacation.
I’ve known this was coming.
I had a plan for this.
During this past month, I was going to write twelve delicious, meaty posts all about the delightful uses of medicine in fiction, schedule them to pop up one per week, and supplement with little observations and witticisms and stuff from my day-to-day life.
That was the plan.
How many posts did you write?
Exactly right! Except completely wrong!
I’m assuming you’re at the other end of the scale, then.
::Sigh:: Good assumption.
Ladies and gentlemen, I wrote no posts for this blog in the past month. None. My archive is empty except for fragments that really aren’t readable yet.
I have no excuse. I had the time. I had the subjects to write about.
I Just Didn’t Do It.
Instead, I played my guitar and watched Stargate SG1 and Avatar: The Last Airbender.
I also wrote some more on my novel, but not as much as I could have, given the fact that I wasn’t putting any wordcount into the blog.
My friends tell me intake mode is just as important as output mode. I think they’re probably right.
But that doesn’t make for a very good blog that’s worthy of people’s time and attention.
And here we are. I’m looking at a three-month free-time desert.
Here’s the deal.
For the next couple of months, the posts are going to be shorter. Like they have been recently. But I’m going to try to make them at least a little more content-y than they have been. More musing about writing, more info about organs and cool things like that. And probably the odd musing about life as an intern.
When I get back into the whole “free time” thing, I’ll get back into the longer posts. Because I do have a good amount of stuff to explain to you still, and I love doing it.
So, if you’ll bear with me, hopefully we can overcome the fact that I was Just Lazy this month.
I appreciate your patience.
And you have no idea how thrilled and flattered I am that you all think my blog is worth your time.
