Writing In Pain

I was wondering if it would be a good idea to write when I had a terrible toothache. I been nursing this thing for like 3 days now and it is driving me crazy!! I had so many things I wanted to accomplish today and didn’t get but one thing done so far. I helped my granddaughter set up a blog. She is so talented when it comes to writing. I see a bright future for her.

I told her while we were setting it up not to get upset if I used expletives. She was very understanding. I didn’t use but one I think, and that was the word shit. I wanted to use others, but I refrained. I feel the need to use some now, let me just stop and take a deep breath. Sigh! There, now I can go on for a little more before I want to drop the f bomb! 

I’m wondering if the tone of writing changes when you write in pain? I’m sure it must because the only thoughts I have right now is of the feeling of someone taking a sledgehammer to the side of my jaw. How is it possible to write something humorous, exciting, or interesting when you feel this way? 


Oh no, the f bomb wants to fly again! I’m reeling it back in. Wow that was close! I need to stop for a while and get my thoughts under control so I can write a little more later. I want need to do some more writing for my book and this toothache is setting me back! Fuck, shit  Darn it, I’m out of here!

  1. The tone of my writing definitely changes when I’m in pain – or even just my mood in general. Because I put so much of myself into Susan, if I’m cranky when I’m writing, she’s cranky. Same with happy, etc. I have to be careful. I’ve changed the entire course of chapters and storyline because of writing my *mood.*
