Writing, Working and the Trials of Pregnancy

Recently I have come to realise that separating your attention three ways can be exhausting. In my eyes writing should always be your main focus when you are a writer; think of story ideas while you’re working, editing ideas while you’re cooking, heck even think of detailing ideas when you’re sleeping. Recently however my writing has suffered and I am actually ashamed to admit that.

As previously mentioned in both a post and a brand sparkly new page I am expecting my first child and I have gotten to twenty-seven weeks, that lovely time when tiredness REALLY smacks you round the chops and doesn’t go away 🙂 Don’t get me wrong, I am thoroughly excited to have my baby but the symptoms of it definitely interfere with your writing time 🙂

Next I have just accepted and started a part-time job. Yes it is only part-time totalling twenty-five hours a week but that is time I could be dedicating to writing lol. Added to that the tiredness from work then you just don’t feel like doing anything apart from climbing into bed and watching questionable tv 🙂 I shouldn’t complain though, I am lucky to have a job and can now finance more things for the baby.

I became painfully aware of this predicament just recently when I decided to work on my short story Requiem for an up and coming deadline for the epic Dagda Publishers. When I was sat with my laptop on in front of me I felt like I couldn’t be stopped; the story just seemed to flow from me like water. Sit me down after a shift, or distract me with something like shopping and there was no hope. I feel bad about it now as I have only just sent the story to my wonderful beta reader Jex, I am painfully aware that it still needs work and I have nine days before the deadline. Eeeekkkkkk O.o

So all I am trying to say I think is ignore my thinly veiled excuse for a whine 😉 and if you find yourself in my position, or a similar position, don’t give in to the tiredness like I did. Plow ahead and you will be left with writing you can be proud of and know you put your all into. Don’t be left with the panic and stretching deadlines like I obviously have 🙂 Trust me, the stress isn’t worth it lol. Although don’t get me wrong, you better believe the next nine days will be dedicated solely to making sure my short story is worthy of Dagda 🙂 I love writing 🙂

We live in a world were it seems to be opened season on consumers. So, is there evidence that detox foot patches work? we can confidently say yes! The visual proof after using detoxifying foot pads is credible. The improvement is obvious when used over several consecutive days. A highly accredited Environmental Laboratory, SRC Analytical Lab, analyzed multiple samples of foot pads. It discovered absorption into the pads of Arsenic, Mercury, Nickel and many others. detox-foot-patches-benefitsA syncrometer was used to analyze multiple pads for a number of folks. The syncrometer identified the following substances in the used pads: aluminum, arsenic, asbestos, benzene, cadmium, copper, DAB dye, fast green dye, isopropyl alcohol, lead, methyl alcohol, mercury, nickel, sudan black dye, thallium, and a plastic byproduct. Scientists analyzed the hair of people before and after the use of the detoxifying foot pads. The difference in levels of toxins was obvious. Japan scientists have conducted detailed research of foot pads using Thermography. They discovered that the pads are able to quicken circulation and thus the detoxification of the body. A study discovered that the cleansing foot pads increase the presence of alpha brain waves. These waves play a role in the healing and relaxation processes. There is one very important thing to keep in mind. You must be careful of cheap, fake detox foot patches. They usually contain lower quality or in some cases harmful substances. This is the principal reason why so many people did not achieve satisfying results with detoxifying foot pads.
